Hi Egil,

> I really would want to see images done via gpic.

What's your answer to the issue of not wanting to use pic, or pic not
being compatible with another preprocessor that is being used?

troff should provide the facility.  Then raw troff writers can use it.
Macro writers can use it.  Preprocessor writers can use it.

pic alone is the wrong place.

We don't *have* to draw lines with pic.  tbl doesn't have to rely on pic
for its line drawing.  pic makes use of troff's line-drawing facilities.
So does tbl.

It should be the same for pixel images.

If you're a big pic fan perhaps it's colouring your view?
