While nothing is out of the question I would think that it is most 
likely in your court at the moment to make it happen.

While I can't speak for the other FOP developers from my (limited) 
understanding most of us don't have a pressing need for that feature. 
For example I deal mainly with day to day business type documents 
(invoices, orders, etc.). The need for auto layout never came up in 
this context. My customers want full control on how these documents 
look without leaving anything to 'chance' what auto layout to some 
extent is.

I am not saying there is no place for auto layout only that in my 
experience with the 10's of thousands of documents my customers have 
produced with FOP it is not really needed.

In the end 'what itches us most' is being build and, unfortunately from 
your point of view, auto table layout is probably not a 'big itch' at 
the moment.
