Yeah, that was my thingo from way back

Ok, since then I've add multiple fonts, text flow through columns, a
constraint based layout system (so you specify the relationships between
elements rather than their location), image loading, partial svp support,
and bugfixes...

I'm actually packing up to go away for a week, and life has been a bit
hecktic since fmII so I won't be able to get a snapshot up until next week
(but may be able to convince my collegue to do it for me).  The code is
all GPLd and based upon libart, freetype 2 and gdk_pixbuf(not gnome
canvas).  I intend to add pango support, and I have some constraint based
pagination code almost working.

My aims are slightly different to the text-canvas thing but I intend to
fold back features when things settle down a bit.  I am also looking into
using raph's new fitz as a back end.
