Thanks a lot !

FYI, there was a little mismatch with the issue number, and I fixed  
it on the wiki

I think it it the right location. Let's wait for other opinions  
though ...

That's a very good idea. As you probably read in the issue, I took  
over the task, and I'll use this wiki page to report any progress and  
step done.

The idea is, as discussed with Oliver and Armin, to reuse some Draw  
features in Writer, like (image rotation). There is a lot to do and  
any help is welcome.

Current work in progress :

- I expermiented some hack (adding image Rotation), but something is  

- reading most of the Draw code.
- comparing Writer and Draw shells.

Long term plan :
Make it work.

Are you interested to share / contribute to the task with me ?
