 * PDFlib Virtual File system (PVF):
 * Create a PVF file which holds an image or PDF, and import the data from the
 * PVF file
 *
 * This avoids disk access and is especially useful when the same image or PDF
 * is imported multiply. For examples, images which sit in a database don't
 * have to be written and re-read from disk, but can be passed to PDFlib
 * directly in memory. A similar technique can be used for loading other data
 * such as fonts, ICC profiles, etc.
 *
 * Required software: PDFlib/PDFlib+PDI/PPS 9
 * Required data: image file
