	Presumably for .png there are a load of strange compression options
which would work well at device surface creation, but for .pdf are there
not all manner of web-linking / even more exotic bits that people may
want emitted ?

	It's not at all obvious to me how to support that sort of thing short
of exposing the internals of the backend rendering method somehow.

	But perhaps I missed the point,
