Looking again at one of the docs we generate with fop, and while it  
has the PDF outline it doesn't have the title/author stuff set after  
all. Sorry to mislead you.

Apparently fop doesn't support doing that directly, according to <http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/faq.html#pdf-doc-properties 

You either have to post-process your PDF file, or use a different  
processor. XEP has worked very well for me in the past, though  
produces larger files than fop.
