It would be great if the layout engine could be factored out as a component 
with a clean interface, so as to be able to switch between "current engine, 
not perfect but usable", and "new engine, not finished but testable".

I have a feeling that working on the layout engine requires fairly 
specialized skills, whereas other parts of the code are more general in 
nature (logging, Driver, config, Avalonizing, etc.). IMHO the layout engine 
is the most "risky" component of FOP, so a good candidate for a component 
with a thin interface.
