txt2pdf on Lotus Notes

I can think of a couple of ways you can incorporate txt2pdf into notes.
The first way is by giving txt2pdf users the ability to attach the converted pdf files to a internal document within Notes automatically. I am doing that from perl using OLE.
The other way is a bit more involved. Lotus Notes uses a very powerful language called LotusScript. LotusScript programmers have the ability to import custom classes (ie. class to convert text to pdf) using a C API or LSX package.
LotusScript already has the ability to work with the file system and having a text2pdf LotusScript API would prevent the need to shelling out to the operating system. Potentially this could be used with any Lotus product that used LotusScript (ie. Lotus 123, Lotus Word Pro, Lotus Approach, etc.). From a Lotus Notes standpoint. LotusScript would be able to convert text to pdf on a schedule. It could run LotusScript like a CGI program. It could be initiated from a GUI type environment on the Notes client. It could be initiated from the web.
