  While the PDFlib/PDI combo is the only way that's actually been stated
  to work...  It bears remembering that PDF files are modified Postscript,
  and tools to convert PDF to/from Postscript do exist.  Perhaps you can
  build something by converting the PDF to PS, which should be text you
  can read and manipulate, then convert back to PDF.  The utilities I'm
  thinking of are ps2pdf and pdf2ps, which seem to be part of the
  Ghostscript package and ship with most Linux distros...

  Hoep this helps!
