That's also going to be an issue for the PostScript renderer, when we
want to apply individual PPDs (Files that contain control commands for
individual printers) or controlling the PostScript Level to be used.

What comes to my mind as an idea is a FOP extension where we can supply
some configuration in form of a (sub-)element tree that gets converted
internally into Avalon Configuration objects that can be used to
configure a particular renderer. On the other side, this mechanism
should only complement (not replace) the configuration possibilities
from the system/user configuration supplied to FOP. I think it's also
important that the extension can take configuration for several
renderers simultaneously.
