That code was alt-design properties code. It seems to me that many of
the ideas and implementation details of alt-design are now sitting in
the FOP code base. This is true whether Finn ever looked at the
alt-design properties code. It ain't over yet.
I did, before I became a committer. Back then I evaluated the different
branches (0.20, alt and head) and made a decision on which one to work on.
The alt-design property code was, back then, in my eyes, code written by
a person who did not intuitively create object oriented design. It was,
IMO, not a good fundation for further work.
I have then later looked at different times, one where I made a
incorrect description of how alt-design stored references from fo-object
to properties, an other when I wanted to understand why you though
alt-designs Property/PropertyValue was any different from head's
Does any record of any of this remain on the web site? No.
Not a single line from alt-design has ever been committed to head by me!
