Uh, yeah, that one. That's a design task by itself. Any takers for a
good exception strategy for FOP and XML Graphics Commons????? I'm not
the brightest when it comes to exceptions.

You mean specificationS (plural), right? Nothing really, except that
today's reality looks different and the API discussion from two years
ago is not finished. Anyway, my proposal from back then is now
implemented as my API abstraction with a few little changes. If I had
the naming problem behind me and the stuff published we could simply
take that and be done with it. Damn, I'll clean this up first thing
tomorrow morning. Should have done it today.
