yes, but it's not such a _big_ problem. The information is there, whether 
pdf or not ;-)
Some day we'll get them (the earlier the better, of course *g*).

The first step was to learn xsl-fo and the limitations of fop (*sigh*).

The next stage then can base on this work and merge the stuff together.
(But there are still some problems to solve before.)
