Hello,

Because printing and PDF rendering is not easy. And because you loose
the ability to have native interface on all paltforms (Gnome, KDE,
Windows 2k, Windows XP, MacOS X, ...).

As somebody else pointed out, the ocaml binding to Cairo library could
be used as underlying framework but you still don't have native
platform GUI style.

Maybe it would be worth putting up a mailing list and a wiki instead
of bothering 500+ caml-list readers? Anybody has easy access to such
facility?

Yours,
d.
