Hi Paul,

Thanks for the patch.
I have committed it.
For the testing, it works for a simple file. Eventually this sort of
testing could be done with the area tree xml -> pdf conversion but this
is not fully working right now.

Eventually we should try to use some common caching system that will
also handle other caching needs. Probably using some library.

The patch didn't quite compile properly. Sometimes you need to do a
build clean first to catch things.
