sadly, no.  and i'm embarrassed to admit that, as i was typing the
original note, i was thinking to myself, "make sure you mention that
you thought of font-stretch and that it isn't supported yet, since
someone is *bound* to suggest it."  argh.

and, regardless of whether font-stretch was supported or not, i'd
still want to eventually start playing with other fonts.  slowly,
but surely, FOP is getting there, and i'm pretty happy with it
