Btw, the program can't do much (yet). Currently they have only implemented
an interface, the rendering engine, and the xar file format. So basically
all you can do is view the examples in /usr/pkg/share/XaraLX/. :-) But I
thought to add it to pkgsrc-wip already so we can easily track its progress.
pkgsrc-wip is work-in-progress after all. :-)
