OBS has a general spec format that gets used for all environments. Writing one 
for NEXTSPACE should not be too complicated. But if you rely on the art backend 
we are in trouble. A library that is required for this backend is not available 
on some systems and currently I only build the standard cairo backend.
What is it that you are using from art that is not available in cairo? Maybe we 
could improve the implementation there to allow you to switch over.
