The August 2006 edition of "The DPubS Report" produced by Cornell University Libraries for the DPubS community announced work underway at the Penn State to bridge the worlds of DPubS and FEDORA. Here is the line from the newsletter:

* Penn State is working on Fedora interoperability. The plan is to
have that capability in the September release, with a working version
for testing in late August.

The newsletter goes on to say that the work will be made available under an open source license, so I for one can't wait to see what it looks like and how we might apply it to our own needs.
