in reply to PDF::Template redesign - I want your ideas!

Is there really a need for it? Imvho, for template driven pdf generation xsl-fo (and a converter to pdf for it) is the way to go. Apaches's FOP does a very good there. And it's easy to create xsl-fo using a templating engine or via xslt.

What I would really like to see is a Perl/FOP glue module.

    That may be a good web solution, but PDF::Template is a stand-alone solution. Adding XSL-FO as something PDF::Writer outputs would definitely be a good idea. Wanna write it?

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
