Is it possible in the upcoming  FOP release  to include a template backward
 compatibility node. The reason is that we are currently using FOP 0.19 and
 we have over 400 XSL template in our system. As there as changes between
 versions , our FOP 0.19 templates are not compatible with FOP 0.23  and
 later. See text from your release notes below.  We do not have the
resources
 to change these templates and are hoping that Apache could support some of
 their previous versions for backward compatibility.
 
 change from fop 0.19.0 to 0.20.3
 =======================
 
 This version supports the XSL-FO Version 1.0 W3C Recommendation
 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/> syntax. So don't forget to
 update your Stylesheets:  Just rename the master-name property to
 master-reference on fo:page-sequence, fo:single-page-master-reference,
 fo:repeatable-page-master-reference and
fo:conditional-page-master-reference

Kevin
