yes the code is "oriented" for pixmap
I'll spend some time to try wmf->vector graphics API around the end april.
but it's impossible to have complete convertion because
wmf = vector + bitmap manipulation
so we loose some part of the drawing
(this is why the lib use pixmap)

Hmm, after many hours on QPicture and wmf (in koffice) I'm perplexed.
I doubt it's possible to have a good implementation of wmf with QPicture.
- is it possible to have bitmap manipulation (raster, pattern) in QPicture
and drawing on a printer ?
- the emmulation in software on some bitmap mapping
give unpredictable performance
(small file->very very slow rendering compare to pixmap)
but for now I'll try wmf->vector graphics API,
then we'll see.
