Support a better document format - djvu. Preferrably both read and export. Perhaps document reading is a bit off the scope, but it's a good format and doc readers don't do bookmarks etc.

    Real djvu support would not be possible (with reasonable
    effort) I am afraid, at least not for the time being. The
    djvu format seems rather complex and has many differances to
    the formats Comix is currently using. The djvu reference
    library is neither available for Python.

    It would be possible to extract image data from djvu files
    with the ddvju application that comes with DjVuLibre. It
    would, however, be rather slow and have none of the
    advantages of the djvu format. So while it is possible I
    don't see any reason to use djvu with Comix at the time
    being except for the case when the djvu format is the only
    available and the user dont wan't/don't know how to convert
    the djvu file manually.

    If you still think that crippled djvu support would be
    something useful you are free to try to convince me. :)
