Yep, unfortunately the StarView Metafile is horribly incapable of
representing more advanced graphics. Fixing the metafile conversion
might be possible, but I'd think cutting it out as the middle man
should fix many more problems.

I *thought* there was code already somewhere that took drawinglayer
objects and converted them into DrawShape, but can't momentarily find
it. Maybe someone else on this list recalls. ;)
