Perhaps - but then, not above fixing the file format or the text system, 
I'm sure. Nor any work that makes the app more maintainable in the long 

Of course, I'm hardly doing any of the work at the moment so I can't 
really talk.

My own current interest - if I ever get enough time to explore it - is 
restructuring the current PDF backend to use PoDoFo for low level 
output. At the same time I'd want to make physical page export work in 
terms of one or more logical pages with positioning information (the 
default being logical = physical page) so imposition during output was 

I might even get to do it one day :S
