All of this "cross platform" (possibly), "efficient" (on the spot PNG 
compression through local sockets is everything but efficient), 
"flicker-free" (I'll believe it when I see it).

So, where's this magic code?

(And all of this instead of adding 1px table borders and maybe other 2-3 
features to QTextDocument; and developing a layout engine in Qt Quick. 
Not to mention it makes for a great user story for Qt, "Yes, the QtHelp 
module requires Qt Quick. No don't worry, it doesn't use OpenGL, it uses 
the software rasterizer, but no, not directly! It spawns another process 
and pushes frames through a local socket")
