	Well - it remains to be seen :-) quite probably our Android work will
end up giving us a nice backend to render documents incrementally to
pixels, without having the native UI - at least, as a first cut.

	Sure - so that shouldn't be -so- hard. We already have pure native-code
that renders things to abstract pixel arrays, that is used by the gtk3,
headless, and android backends - it shouldn't be impossibly hard to
re-purpose that to your display system I guess.
