Hi I was thinking about packaging a smaller subset of FOP with only those renderers inside that are necessary (in the end I decided against it for the moment since the size benefit didn't seem to warrant it).
I noticed though that the type RendererFactory has a hardcoded list of RendererMakers in one of its initializers "registerStandardRenderers()" Since FOP apparently uses sun's Service API anyways I'd suggest to use it here as well. Just a thought, there might be something I'm missing. Applied patch adds the dynamic lookup in the factory and the necessary service definition file residing in META-INF. Regards Nils
