[Rd] wmf on Unix?

  libEMF (http://sourceforge.net/projects/libemf/) looks like it may be
the solution to generating WMF/EMF files on Unix.  It's a general-purpose
(LGPL) library that implements the EMF API ...

  (I was originally going to write to the list to ask why small circles
appear to be filled (in src/gnuwin32/graphapp/gdraw.c) by generating a
series of rectangles rather than using some kind of "filled circle"
primitive; someone I passed an R-generated EMF file to was worried that
the profusion of little rectangle objects might give the printer hiccups
... I assume there is some good reason for this, probably now lost in the
mists of time.)
