Bah... this chain would produce a huuuuge pdf. Moreover, it would store
characters as images and not as fonts. Thus, eg. pdftotext would give an
empty file... It has no use.

Btw, the it is said that latest OpenOffice can save docs as pdf (tho I
didn't see latest OO personally). Just think a moment, what could it mean?
You could produce pdf's from your doc with older versions as well ("print to
file"). Now you can *save* them as pdf. Doesn't it mean that OO can open
them as well? Anyone who tried latest OO?
