I didn't modify the old pt.xml file, I wrote a new one entirely from
scratch. If you diff the files you can see that very clearly. The old one
didn't even take accented characters into consideration (he claimed so, but
the patterns contained no accented characters), and produced a lot of
errors. It also defined some words in the <exception> section which where
hyphenated incorrectly.

The original TEX file was made by Paulo Rezende, now back in Brazil (at
Unicamp), and it was converted by Paulo Soares (working presently in
Portugal), who I contacted at the time. He posted no objection of us
replacing the file. (In fact, he doesn't use FOP at all and actually works
in a rival project...)
