It does use current fop cvs, but there is a patch to cocoon that is "on
my hard drive" (TM). I am thinking about where to put it (I am open to
bribes to make me think faster).
It doesn't work on the command line, I'm not sure what the problem is,
something to do with cocoon I think.
You will need Jimi to get png's to work.

There is also a patch to forrest to get the bookmarks and some other
minor improvements when using fop cvs.
