Good work BTW. I'm quite impressed.

I'm all for re-use of code solving common problems. Moving the image
loading package into a position more neutral than the FOP project is
certainly a good idea. I hope the font related code can be shared
with Batik also.

As a side note: digging around sf.net and various other code
repositories turned up more than one hundred (!!!) attempts
at an image loading and processing library in Java. Most of
them are abandoned, but there are some thriving projects. I haven't
evaluated them in detail, but it might be worth doing this, and
possibly seek cooperation.
