Alan, I already tried to build PDF-catalogues from the last public 
provided package 0.18. It wasn't a big problem to write the code: the 
problem was the realy big amount of cliparts which were already in OCAL. 
It took too much time and CPU performance for generating PDFs on the 
fly. And OCAL still grows and grows. So, I think the only way for 
producing PDFs from OCAL would be an offline way. For doing that, I 
would need information about the structure of the database, how files 
are stored and referenced and so on.
