Umm, the discussion is not about "print to PDF", which is actually the method 
that several of us have been recommending all along.

The discussion has been about _Save As_ PDF, which requires a *lot* more 
awareness and cooperation between FrameMaker and Distiller. Garnier has some 
scripted system which automatically produces a whole stack of PDFs using the 
Save As PDF function, and he has run into problems trying to use a 
four-release-old version of FrameMaker with the latest version of Acrobat.
