Hi Norm,

I dunno about the uptake of FOP 2.1 (yet), but can say for myself I
don't and won't use the old FOP any more. Given the choice I would
prefer to see FOP 2.x than 1.x in Calabash.

Any reason why not migrate? Any reasonable chance of XSL that works
okay under 1.x but not under 2.x? (Any reasonable chance of such XSL
that also can't be improved?)

Thanks for asking,
