[webkit-help] rendering HTML to a bitmap (wincairo port)

Is it possible to use the WebKit(2) API to render directly to a memory
bitmap or texture?
I've already built the WinCairo port. It works nicely in a window
(WinLauncher), very cool! However, I'd like to render to a fixed bitmap,
without any window to embed WebKit in (somewhat like a console
application). Is this possible without a huge effort?
- hack the COM object?
- create a completely new platform layer/port?
- am I completely missing a convenient WebKit2 API call? :)
- modify/use the print functionality?
[Some context: I would like to start using WebKit for creating reports,
from inside our full-screen DirectX9-based simulator (Windows-based). It
just works like any other DX9 full-screen game, and has its own UI
toolkit. To integrate a simple static report, generated from HTML, into
our UI, we need to render the HTML to a texture so we can use that to
show the report. Nothing interactive required, and no networking
required. I'm a newcomer to WebKit so any pointers are greatly appreciated.]
