All work should be done in a branch. People can then see what you are up 
to and provide assistance, point out potential problems etc.

It's much easier for us to review the work if it is done piece by piece. 
besides other people need better PDF generation (myself included). If 
time allows those people will be able to help (although to be honest, 
I'm unlikely to help given my time schedule at present).
