It depends how these elaborate those crop-marks should be. The necessary
extension code is easy. The painting of the crop-marks should probably
be as renderer-independent as possible (so it can be reused by other
renderers). So it should probably be implemented using Java2D/Graphics2D
(see AbstractRenderer.getGraphics2DAdapter()). But that shouldn't take
too long, either. I guess with all testing and some documentation, not
more than 2 or 3 days. As already mentioned I have the beginnings of a
patch for bleed box which could serve as a starting point. Unfortunately,
I don't have it with me here in Amsterdam this week.

Stemmt, aber d'Lüüt do händ ned so Fröid, wenn's müend Schwiizerdüütsch
läse.

(For non-Swiss: the above is Swiss German which is normally not written
down, just spoken. You haven't missed any important content. hehe.)
