I think you're the second one who announced such a TIFF renderer in a
short period of time. Personally, I would like to see a bitmap renderer
in FOP even though I don't have an immediate need myself. I'd like to offer
my sponsorship. If no other committer wants to take it, I'm going to look
at the two submissions as soon as possible and see how best to integrate
one (or a combination of both) into FOP. If someone is against that move,
please speak up.

Here's a link to the other post:
