one thing you can do is something like....

   pPict = new SwDropCapsPict(get<VclContainer>("parent_in_ui"),

if container is a grid then use pPict->set_grid_top/left_attach to put
it into the right place

Either way you'll probably have to adapt SwDropCapsPict to have a
GetOptimalSize to return something sensible, e.g.
LogicToPixel(size_in_old_src, MapMode(MAP_APPFONT));
