Many thanks for doing that work.

I can help with explaining some.

Used for our SVG-to-PNG conversions.
The seed-sample has some demonstrations.

However, our Gump is using Forrest's packaged version,
so Gump is not helping with suggesting whether our Batik
can be upgraded.

I don't know. IIUC, then our commits mail archives say that
nikolaken added it when updating the Chaperon libraries.

Gump said that it was needed, when i started getting
Gump to build our "seed-sample-basic". But sorry no idea
where or why.

Me either. As far as i know, we don't actually use it
by default. See the match for "**.html"
around line 50 of main/webapp/raw.xmap

There is a JIRA issue about it. Cannot seem to find an
