A) printing. printing. printing.

There are so many ways to make this better.
End goal would be something with templates, but if you could just
something where for the 6up print the relative height of text and
profile can be modified within reason. The profile is cool and
everything, but most people will want to be able to make it small enough
to have all of the notes printed...

B) native building under Windows

I know you have that mostly working. Having this documented well enough
that someone else could install the same tools and libraries and retrace
your steps to get to a working build would be helpful.

C) turn the profile preparation calculation into a two pass thing

i.e., first calculate JUST the profile, tank pressure, partial pressures
(and allow the drawing to start once that is done), then do all the
other calculations (deco, TTS, etc)

That last one will need some coordination with Tomaz who wants to
reimplement the profile stuff, anyway
