fop v0.95 needs Batik 1.7. I agree that it should go to experimental
It seems that it needs this version for WMF stuff (at least).
I also changed gcj to openjdk6.

I tested to build a 2400 pages documentation (Scilab's docbook to PDF)
using also MathML & Latex. It works for me with OpenJDK & this version
of FOP.

Where did you see files in public domain ?

I udpated the README.Debian and took the opportunity to add a script to
repack the archive.
See revision 7120.

You are welcome :)
