More than once I said I'd develop the PDF backend further - just a few
additions to OpenJade, and I could give a competable solution, though the
backend is running on JAVA. It is the "linking" facility and a few
workarounds to support the popular docbook standard, and it should be a
usefull tool altogether.

But up to now, noone seemed to have the time.

Adam, I really appreciate your enthusiasm, and I can stand behind most of
your words easily. Let's hope some people capable of programming some C++
and producing RPM's and Win32 bins will get to work again - then I will
surely provide more time for DSSSL and the PDF backend, I promise.
