Yes, sure. The only thing I would still want is that you dont't 
*have to* specify all this, and also that it's possible to have
a per-document paramterization for that. Config file only is not
feasible in many environments. I often tend to think of an FO
stream as a "job to process", not a document. A job should be
able to contain everything necessary.

Used to be. They outsourced all of that to a company with a CEO named
Berlusconi if I remember correctly. 8-)
