The work-around obviously only works for simple cases. In FOP 0.20.5
there's no chance to do what you suggest. Even with the current
development code I doubt this would be so simple. I don't think this is
even on the task list.

Theoretically, you could try to create a Batik extension to handle FO
elements. You could then write a simple wrapper around the FO snippet to
create a full XSL-FO document that could be rendered by FOP's AWT
renderer to the Graphics2D interface given by Batik. But this is very

It's probably better on the long run to somehow support the current
development so FOP 1.0 gets into arm's reach.
