No, but this was the first (and only for now) time I used it.

However one remark : maybe the file format parameter to drawToFile
is unnecessary. It should be better to guess it from the file extension,
and if people want an exotic extension or no extension at all they
could as well rename the file later.

This would be more consistent with renderPDF's drawToFile (BTW
even the .PDF extension could mean we want to use renderPDF's 
drawToFile instead of another one)

In conclusion a single (more intelligent) drawToFile which 
magically dispatches to specific ones would be nice, IMHO.

Or maybe I'm missing something.
