[MBS] CoreGraphics, Context, PDF, Bitmap

Hi, I was hoping someone could clear up some general question with
the MBS CoreGraphics classes. I'm writing a graphics abstraction
class that supports a different vector/bitmap image formats. One that
I would like to support is CG. My CG implementation is going to be
through MBS.

1) I am wondering if it is possible to store my drawing commands
inside a CGContextMBS object and later decide whether I want to
produce a PDF (CGPDFDocumentMBS) or a bitmap (CGBitmapContextMBS). In
otherwords, it is possible to use the context object to store the
commands and then play them back in a PDF or bitmap object.

I know that I can create a PDF object and then turn that into a
bitmap (but not vise-versa) but seems to require that I pass a file
reference. This would be an acceptable workaround if #1 is not
possible. Even better if there is there a way to create a PDF
document in memo

John

With a plugin change this is possible.

If you think it would be worth adding to MBS, that would be
wonderful. I can then currently write to a temp PDF file until this
functionality could be added.
