ARM port of k2pdfopt

I am not working on anything for ARM. An ARM port from me is not likely to happen any time soon. My main concern is that I have no experience with ARM development and would have to port nearly a dozen open-source libraries (~1 million lines of code) to ARM--no small task, and I have other priorities at the moment (like adding OCR). Finally, as cscat said, the memory use and CPU use of k2pdfopt is considerable. I think the results would typically be frustratingly slow.
