AFAIK, the old GnomePrint used with Gnome 1.4 had this capability. I'm
not sure about the status of his XFT work, including embedding and

I would really like to be able to do this. There are several problems
with this right now, though:
1) No way to know exactly what plugins are loaded
2) No way for a plugin to add arguments to the command line
3) No way to execute a specific plugin from the command line *and* pass
that plugin specific arguments
4) Plugins get loaded after the command line is parsed
Right now it is accessible from "File->Print to Image". It prints an
image per page of the document. For example, if your document is titled
"Hello World.txt" the first page will be "Hello World.txt_1.png". With
a little bit of work, we'll be able to pop up a dialog box and be
smarter about things (choose file names, choose output format, ...).
I also forgot that I didn't see a way to pass a unicode string to IM's
Drawable class, or even a string with an associated encoding (eg
ISO-8859-2 or UTF-8) which would be an acceptable work-around. I'll see
what I can do about this.
