Hello Victor,

Do you have time over the next few days to look at
Peter's patches (and apply them as appropriate)?  Some
of this proposed code is affecting your turf
(FOTreeBuilder), etc., the rest is primarily just the
RTF handler--all changes are thankfully just for
trunk.  Take a good look at the code.  If you don't
have time, I'll happily do so this weekend.  (I'll be
taking care of Thomas' SVG stuff this weekend myself.)
