Good news and bad news:

I just committed the initial plugin, it works for the minimal sample 
(provided in fo), but not for our skin generated fo files. I've not 
debugged this, and "match of the day" (English Premier league football 
program) is on so I'm not going to try and debug it now.

All I have done to try and solve the problem is use the latest release 
candidate jfor library (same problem existed with version 0.7.1, which 
is what the Cocoon jfor block uses.

It's in SVN now so anyone can have a go at it whilst I watch football 
and sleep, I'll look again when I can.

Note that there is a little installation work needed (see README.txt in 
the plugin).
