I don't know the answer to that. I'm hoping Dave or Bertrand knows.

However, it does raise another question. I'd assume the more recent
versions of Batik are licensed ALv2. Could we:

1) Upgrade our fork to be based on a more recent Batik version... or
2) Preferably, work with the Batik community to get our customizations
integrated in some way?

I know #2 has been discussed before and I think it was deemed unlikely or
even undesirable. But are our customizations too extreme to perform a #1?

Short of all that, I'm hoping we can just upgrade the license of our fork.
It seems to me that should work.
