Hmmm. I think this comment is directed at me. WRT the first sentence, since this is open source with an Apache-style license, if we fail to make a nice framework for others to create a FOP-like product, then we have, by definition, failed to make a nice framework for FOP developers to create FOP. If a debate is needed here at all, it should be over whether such a framework is needed at all. WRT the second sentence, I guess I don't understand how failing to create things that can be used to create a FOP helps create FOP. It is like saying "I don't want to build a foundation, I just want to build a house." Again, a debate about whether we are building something that needs a foundation or not might be interesting and useful. OTOH, maybe it would just be a waste of everyone's time. Victor Mote
