The PrintingConsensusPoll has not seen much progress the last half
year.. (you've lost a few links there, btw. It's PDF_Bugs,
PDF_Test_Cases, and PDF_Tools) On the mailing list, however, there seem
to have been a silent agreement on using Cairo for PDF output when/if
Inkscape starts use it for rendering. Is that what you search here?
I wrote my own PDF output for Inkscape few weeks ago. It doesn't even
try to address all your requirements and is not based on Cairo. All I
wanted was a PDF with colours, bounding box and transparency. And that
is about all there is. I never got much further than strokes and fills.
It wasn't needed for the drawings I wanted to convert anyway. There is
no support for features such as text, patterns or embedded images..
If this still sounds interesting enough as a starting point I could mail
it to you.
