Hi, Bertrand

My motivation is to promote the development of an RTF renderer, so obviously 
anything that helps is welcomed.

The Renderer interface and the PDF Renderer implementation should be 
excellent guides.

I don't know if I'd recommend looking at Jade. I had to go through the 
source one time trying to track down a bug during a PowerPC build, and even 
though I know C++ I found it pretty hard slogging. I'm thinking perhaps that 
this is where Guy's stuff would come in really helpful.
