Now I get it, thanks. Well, it was not so much a decision by the
community than my extreme pushing into the direction that we should call
the AWTRenderer the Java2DRenderer. :-) Anyway, the naming problem IMO
only applies to the AWTRenderer itself and that remains within FOP where
I agree we need to be careful about the renaming. The components we
extract are purely technical I don't think there is a reason for the
Graphic2D implementations to bear any note of "AWT". It's even more
wrong to talk about AWT in this context, since this part has absolutely
nothing to do with the "Advanced Windowing Toolkit".
