If there is no objections, I'd like to package FOP and FESI.
As stated in their control files:

Package: lib-fop-java
Architecture: all
Depends: java-common, lib-xt-java
Description: A [XSL] Formatting Object to PDF Translator
 FOP is a print formatter driven by XSL formatting objects.
 It is a Java 1.1 application that reads a formatting object 
 tree and then turns it into a PDF document. The formatting 
 object tree can be in the form of an XML document (output by 
 an XSLT engine like XT) or can be passed in memory as a DOM 
 Document or (in the case of XT) SAX events.
 Note that FOP is still alpha. It is slow, buggy and doesn't 
 support much of the XSL spec. It's getting there, though.
 For more information, take a look at the FOP web site 
 at http://www.jtauber.com/fop/

Package: lib-fesi-java
Architecture: all
Suggests: lib-fesi-java-doc
Depends: java-common
Description: A full implementation of the EcmaScript language in Java
 FESI (pronounced like fuzzy)  is a full implementation of the 
 EcmaScript language (defined in the standard ECMA 262 available
 at http://www.ecma.ch (edition of june 97).  EcmaScript is largely
 equivalent to the JavaScript language version 1.1 or to the core 
 part of JScript, but without the navigator specific extensions. 
 A few extensions can be loaded, to provide basic input/output, 
 file input/output, access to Java objects, database access and 
 regular expression based search from an EcmaScript program, 
 including dynamic loading of classes and beans. 
 FESI consists of a set of java packages, allowing to use EcmaScript
 as a macro language for Java applications, and of an interactive 
 interpreter (usable from the command line to test EcmaScript programs). 
 The integration with Java is very strong, making FESI a useful tool 
 to test Java libraries.
