Ah, there's the catch. Yes, CCITT4 is particularly interesting which is not supported by the code in Batik. But still, I think we don't have to support everything under JDK 1.3. I wonder how many people under JDK 1.3 would need that particular compression type. And if they really do they then have several examples on how to adjust the bitmap renderer for themselves. And a additional JAI implementation is certainly not a big deal after we have the first one.
