It's easily possible to do this using gtk, without any X calls.

Indeed, the problem is probably that we need to get the plugins to write
their data not to a file (which they all do now), but to
memory. This isn't overly hard but requires some modifications to the
plugins themselves and the plugin subsystem.

 I think it wouldn't be a problem to write to temporary file and then read it
in (performance issues don't matter that much IMO). The biggest technical
difficulty is exporting only the selected part of the document, not entire
document - alas most apps and their export plugins are written in a way that
makes exporting only selected part of the document impossible.
