Indeed. Logging is a special case where static lookup is in order. For the other cases lookup via references is preferred (IMO). > This is the stack frame: > >  org.apache.fop.layout.hyphenation.Hyphenator.getHyphenationTree > (Hyphenator.java:67) >  org.apache.fop.layout.hyphenation.Hyphenator.hyphenate (Hyphenator.java:232) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.LineLayoutManager.getHyphenContext > (LineLayoutManager.java:479) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.LineLayoutManager.getNextBreakPoss > (LineLayoutManager.java:228) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.BlockLayoutManager.getNextBreakPoss > (BlockLayoutManager.java:204) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.FlowLayoutManager.getNextBreakPoss > (FlowLayoutManager.java:79) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.PageLayoutManager.getNextBreakPoss > (PageLayoutManager.java:229) >  org.apache.fop.layoutmgr.PageLayoutManager.doLayout > (PageLayoutManager.java:194) > > The first two frames are in static context.

On first thought, yes. But I feel the scope of the FOUserAgent is still somewhat undefined. Maybe we need to finally settle this issue. Until this is done I consider it safe to hold the user configuration in there. We can change that easily later. Jeremias Maerki
