Yes that strikes me a very powerful idea indeed, and given CDraw, like
Cairo, is fundamentally based on Postscript rendering primitives there
should a perfect fit.
The ability to import any arbitrary Postscript / EPS would be hugely
powerful (even if it is the basic shapes data with no meta information).
