I think it would be preferable to have a FOP option to output the
intermediate FO file that it uses in its processing, similar to the way many
compilers can output some of their intermediate files.

Just today I've finally diagnosed a strangeness in my program to the fact
that using FOP to transform gives a different result sometimes than doing
the transform manually and following it with a FOP run on the .fo file.  In
my case, the difference was from having the following line in my XSL file:

        <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

This is respected when doing the manual transform, but the FOP run seems to
treat it as "no".

I'll shortly be posting an email related to this latter issue.

P.S. I think that XEP provides separate files for doing the transform
followed by the rendering.  I found them handy.  Of course, I've created
some for FOP, as I'm sure most do.

Would you think we should put a Xalan.bat/Xalan.sh file
into the FOP distribution? (or xslt.bar/xslt.sh)
