I have been working in the creation of a tool to annotate PostScript
and PDF (sort of what Acrobat destiller) does. The idea is to be able
to put arrows, boxes and text on top of a PDF or PS document.  So far
I have been looking at Ghostview and I have been tring to port it to
GNOME. In the process, I discover that Ghostview defines an X11 Widget
to display PostScript. Does anybody know if there is a PostScript
widget in GTK? Anybody working on something similar? 

My guess is that it will be a valuable widget to have and maybe to
include in EzPaint.

I am not an expert in GTK, so I am stumbling a little bit (I have
never created a widget). If you have any ideas on where in the widget
hierarchy it will fall, what widget to use as a basis or any tips they
will be greatly appreciate it.
