Hmm, so is this a Windows-only code? Does it behave gracefully enough
outside of Windows?
Isn't it easy to limit an extension to a particular platform? The
Windows-only code wouldn't harm anyone in that case.. besides, do you
have any need of EMF on Linux? Did you look at my PDF exporter? That
one works okay with pdflatex. Personally I see EMF mainly as something
to be used with MS-Word, but maybe I am wrong in that assumption.
Anyway, the needed functions are part of the Windows API, but as far
as I know they are re-implemented in libemf. So technically you should
be able to use this extension on Linux by linking with libemf. Maybe
using libemf would be an option for Win95/98 as well? But I somehow
doubt that you would be able to view such an EMF on Win95/98..
