The best person that will help you is a user of Batik that uses Maven, Lars?

not too problematic, just a bit annoying for some users, but it should
be done at some point
groupId should probably be org.apache.xmlgraphics.batik

is it a real dependency or it's just that the fop pom is messed up?
yes, you can depend in fop and add an exclusion for batik there

or you could put a js-1.6R5patched.jar under
org.apache.xmlgraphics.batik group with its own pom. Make sure in the
description you state clearly that it's a patched version to avoid

if you don't use maven2 to build I'd put them in
/jars and /poms

No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
