Thanks for clarifying /BT for me. 
I have been able to get WinCVS working. So far I have
implemented QUAD_TO segment in, text
drawing and correct those color issues. I did not
implement a StrokeSVGText for PS because new
configuration mechanism has not implemented yet. Right
now I working on traits and borders, but this may take
a longer time 'cause I am kind of caught up by my own
paid project.

One question, is it possible to apply some changes I
made so far to maintainence branch or it's too late?
