talking of which, is there some image-format supported by abi
which stores line-strokes instead of bitmaps? it would save a
lot of space if the equations could get converted into such
an image-format. are there thoughts in that direction? in
other word-processors there is usually a built-in editor with
proprietary image-formats (i.e. not all do use .wmf drawings).
what will abi support for line-drawing, and when?
