    What is the current state of FOP + Batik?

    So, if cvs FOP will not currently work with cvs Batik, and given
your statements above I would feel that I have a fairly free hand to
muck with the TextPainter interface (and not do the duplicate methods
thing - which would be ugly since I would ideally want to 'repurpose'
existing method names to be consistent with the rest of GVT).

    However, if cvs FOP will currently work with cvs Batik.  Then I
would not want to break what is currently working (so I would
duplicate methods for at least a release).

    As for sooner, I don't think it would make it for 1.5B3 but
probably shortly there after.
