Thanks both of you for your interest and advice. I am currently looking
into using IJS as a means to segregate out the non-GPL parts of the
driver and will keep the list updated as to the progress I make.

That's certainly true for the first part of the project, in which I am
concentrating on getting LaTeX printed in a very direct manner. Later
on I'll be looking into getting equations converted into other, more
accessible, formats. This /may/ need higher-level access but at the
moment all I need is to process the raster into a form that the core
binary driver can understand.
