I don't think having to download a bunch of unnecessary stuff is an 
improvement. Also, Debian is a pretty standard target these days. I'm 
obviously not suggesting building exclusively for Debian.

Perhaps consider using some other tool like dblatex. Personally I'd rather 
deal with a TeX based toolchain than this Java/FOP stuff.

True. The hgbook built by FOP etc looks Ok. The one built by dblatex also 
looks Ok. There are some minor differences.
