i've finally got around to getting a basic understanding of pdf. wrote
some code that wrote a valid pdf file. came to grips with how all of
it's objects, streams, xrefs, and offsets work. my intention is to take
a look at cario's back-ends and see what if anything i can come up with
for pdf. no promises or anything, but hopefully i'll manage.
after discussing the ps issues on irc a while back i, too, have almost
settled on the opinion that cairo -> pdf -> ps will probably be the best
solution in the end.
