I had a look at the patch and think it would be really great to get a proper 
Unicode / international line breaking algorithm into FOP.

Unfortunately there seems to be a bug in the code which breaks the current 
layout engine test suite. The test text-decoration_1.xml fails. I think it has 
to do with text like "/over/under/through" and FOPs handling of "/" as a 
breaking char somehow conflicts with your work.

I am also uncomfortable with the triple breaking being done: First FOP natively 
breaks text into chunks based on sp, nbsp, lf, and the like. Then you take 
those chunks and break them using a BreakIterator in line mode. After that 
those pieces are broken again using another BreakIterator in word mode. That 
seem to be a lot of iterations over those characters.

Would it be possible / sensible to have a single breaker which does all three 
things?

May be we should simplify the problem and concentrate on line breaking first. 
Leaving the type setting fine tuning to a subsequent patch once we are happy 
with the line breaking?

What do you think?
