Since we're just talking about a single file, I think mailing them
directly to me is the easiest way for now. BTW, the attachment didn't
go through on the Tracker.

I think you'll be better off following the lead of how backend PS
handles image drawing, which has no GTK dependence. I don't think you
need to use GTK or PNG as an intermediary. You may want to get a
fresh CVS checkout because there was a screwup in the width/height
dimensions in earlier versions that has been fixed.
Glad to see you're making progress!
