Thank you to all that voted. Since there are no objections or bugs
reported I will proceed with the merge.

I would like to merge the branch branches/Temp_BasicSideFloats to
trunk. The branch has a implementation of side floats that uses the
same approach used when handling change in IPD across pages.
These are the known limitations:
-- the "clear" fo:float attribute is ignored; only the float attribute
(left or right) is used
-- overlapping of floats in the Y is not handled (even in the case
there would not be overlap in the X direction)
-- floats that extend beyond the body region are not properly handled
and will overflow past the edge of the region
-- if a float extends to bottom of the body region and there are
footnotes in the page the float may overlap with the footnote region
-- floats next to a table are not supported unless the start and end
of the table happens in between the start and end of the float
Examples can be found in the thread with subject "RFC: basic side
floats" in this mailing list.
To follow due process and since this will be a new major feature I am
launching a vote.
Please vote or report a bug before the end of Monday UTC, December 1st.
