This sort of thing isn't an uncommon requirement.

Back in the days when I wrote market research software for money, we 
wrote portable ANSI C code to generate .WMF files, then used a VBA 
script to open powerpoint and get it to put one on each page.

It was all a bit messy in a microsoft sort of way, but came in pretty 
handy for all sorts of things.
