FOP success
Passing along one success report, from someone who knows what he's

Also, it sounds as if 'xmlto' is going to have FOP as an optional
target, so we can test our full toolchain:

Hot diggity dog!

I finally got around to trying this out today, and I have to say this is
a beautiful thing! Everything just worked! Wonderful!

To give you some background, I've spent the past several weeks working
on Docbook/FOP stuff for another project, and been fighting the whole
Java stack the entire time. Karsten and Thomas (and anyone else who
worked on this), please contact me offline and I'll find a way to buy
you a pizza. (Now if I could just get this other project finished, so
that I can work on Fedora docs...)
