Yes, there are many unimplemented and unpolished pdf features in gpdf
which require more work. I was a bit overwhelmed that some folks
preferred today's gpdf to ggv for pdf-viewing.

Some posts sounded like ``replace ggv with gpdf in the desktop release.'' 
That confused me. GPdf will not display PostScript files. So Jaka's ``single
shell for ggv and gpdf'' idea sounds much better to me. I still think that
that cannot be too hard. GPdf's shell and component have borrowed some code
from ggv's and some from EoG's. All use Bonobo controls. All implement
Bonobo::Zoomable. What remains? The issues Jens points out, handling pages in
ggv and gpdf (and abw?). But then, I haven't done Real Software before.
