State of the implementation

For an overview, the implementation status is commented here following the structure of the PDF specification.

Although many pieces are not implemented, the base machinery is fully functional. Most of the missing features are not frequently used. If you need them, it is rather easy to implement them with the PDF specification and all the examples in the library.
