Seifeddine Dridi commented on FOP-2293:

I disagree with Vincent on this point. We need to come to consensus in a public 
discussion. Otherwise, there may be vetoes when it comes time to process a 
request to integrate a patch. I had thought we had reached a degree of 
consensus previously, so I'm surprised that you haven't followed it.
My FOP experience is still new, so I try to listen to as many opinions as 
possible before making the final decision. Like I said, I'm still open to 
suggestions/advices. I'm just experimenting after all and there is nothing 
definite yet. Maybe Vincent can express himself on this matter.

There is nothing in the spec of multi-switch that suggests whether its cases 
are all processed (for layout) at once (eagerly) or upon toggling (lazily). You 
appear to be reading into the spec when you suggest this is not the case.
Correct. There are details in the spec that I had probably overlooked or maybe 
I went too far with my own interpretation...In your opinion, what's the best 
way to integrate best-fit into FO multi-switch, while still adhering to the 
XSL-FO standards?

> I have been working on an extension for whitespace management, similar to 
> what's described here: 
> http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/WhitespaceManagement
> The logic of the extension is very simple: the user defines a set of 
> alternatives that he wishes to insert at the end of a page, then if there is 
> enough space left, FOP will pick the alternative that best matches the user's 
> selection criteria (first fit, smallest fit, biggest fit).
> This is my first work on FOP and it took me almost 2 months to reach this 
> stage in development. But it's not the end of course, so I'm relying on your 
> feedback to improve it.
> Thank you
