It’s actually dompdf itself (shipped in phpdocx) that could use tcpdf as
a backend, but “The TCPDF adapter is not ready yet” in the version used
for ownCloud:

Happy if it can be of some use.

Indeed we haven’t unbundled it yet (it’s really a short one IIRC), but
I’d appreciate a few pointers to what you’ve already done (I’m a bit
lost in Fedora-land, but I’m confident I’ll be able to navigate if I
have an idea about where to start with).

Thanks a lot for the detailed information, I may bounce your initial
message directly to the list if someone is willing to look at it: I’m
not sure that I wish to maintain a patched version of Doctrine/DBAL
right now, but I really appreciate your follow up upstream so we can all
benefit of the improvements.

For the record (as already told in IRC), the owncloud Debian package
currently ships an embedded patched copy of Doctrine/DBAL, since using
the php-doctrine-dbal package ends up in failing to upgrade from ownCloud 5.

If it’s of any help, we already took care of those in Debian:
  - http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/php-opencloud.html
  - http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/php-irods.html
(those pages should link to any relevant material for developers, but
feel free to ask for more information if needed).
