Thanks for the information. It's not bad news for me at all, but more
just a data point. I wanted to see an actual estimate of just how
difficult it is to add float support to FOP, and your estimate is quite
helpful. I haven't read the specification myself, so I have no intuition
about how crazy floats are, and it doesn't surprise me that a feature
like this could take years to implement.
