I don’t mind. But just to clear any ambiguity, what I’m working on
currently still is the prototype, not the implementation of the new
approach into FOP. I’m not publishing it simply because I don’t have
much to show at the moment. My initial plan to publish what I have [1]
still stands, it simply got delayed by my work on ChangingIPDHack.

Publishing code without the associated documentation amounts to the same
thing as not publishing code at all, and the frequency of changes that
I’m bringing to the prototype at the moment would make the maintenance
of any documentation too costly.
