Yeah, that's what I was hoping.  You can see how it's used in the
mk-release-pdfs script on borka. It doesn't explain why we're doing it,
that's probably in the list archives somewhere, but it does show what we
do. So it should be easy enough to see if the benefit goes away :) (it
would also be nice for build times - that pdftweak step is very very slow)
