Indeed, that was one of my concerns when porting the original QGraphicsScene 
code to QtQuick/QSG (which, for the records, is the worst API I have ever 
used). My plan back then was to build alternative frontends, e.g. for tabular/
textual presentations like the ones we already have and also for printing. 
Concerning printing, I wasn't sure about the best way to do it. PDF? TeX? SVG?
