I was trying to use "font-stretch" attribute in my SVG which I wanted to
convert to PDF using PDFTranscoder.  I ran into some problems.

I first added the proper font element to my configuration file.  However, the
transcoder didn't use it as expected.  It ignored my stretch attribute.  It
turns out, FOP does not support this attribute for font lookups.  It only uses
family, weight, and style.  These seem to be consistent with CSS1 but not with
CSS2.  CSS2 has added font-stretch attribute and font-variant.

Is there a plan to support these additional attributes?  Is seems that for
PDFTranscoder the changes will be needed in:

Of course, other renderes besides PDFTranscoder would need to be changed as
well but it could be possible to keep backwards compatibility.

Is this something that is in plans?  If not, would you accept potential
