No, just add dblatex support, please do NOT drop fop support.

dblatex is only an experimental feature for pdf output.
I do not think fop users should switch to dblatex.

You like dblatex, no problem, but please do not force others like it.

For example, you can add another target:
    make pdf-by-dblatex [LINGUA=en|...]

Since fr not in my repository, I can not test fr support.
But I can build hgbook smoothly for en, es, it and ja.
