Pascal Sancho commented on FOP-2293:
------------------------------------

Despite of different interpretations of REC, in fine we have 2 alternatives to 
define the toggle mechanic:

 - use only fox attributes
 - use fox element.

>From userland, the attribute based approach seems more appropriate:
 - replace all fo:multi-toggle with only one fox attribute
 - at a glance, the user can understand what is the present role the 
multi-switch
 - all fox material is in the same location, and fox overload is minimal.

Internally, I've not investigated to know what approach is the best one.

I definitively prefer the only-attribute approach, but I will follow the 
general consensus (if any...)

> 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
