Agreed and I wish that had been the default in FOP 0.20.5 as well :)

It would have prevented me from defining an XML-based protocol for 
transporting FOP-generated PDFs through the stages of our workflow system. 
Adding support for binary data in the protocol would break all the clients.

Anyway, the ascii-85 filter works perfectly for now.

Thanks a lot,
