Glom Precise Printouts

At some time I’ll have to implement a type of printout or report in Glom that uses fixed positioning. For instance, to enter text into the correct spaces on pre-printed forms, or just so that printouts always look the same. At the moment, printouts take up as much space as necessary, and flow appropriately (I “print out” to HTML in the browser at the moment).

So, suggestions are welcome for some code that I should reuse, or adapt. I guess it would need the following abilities.

Something using cairo and pango would be nice.
