ashkulz, why don't you do what I do and bundle all supporting programs with the script? Maybe python can't be bundled, but at least bundle xpdf so that "no, don't use 3.00, use manually compiled 3.01" could be avoided.

The stuff that you did with auto-adjusting autocropping sounds cool. I haven't taken apart your stuff yet. How do you do it? You do the cropping directly with xpdf or you rasterize and then use image tools? How do you make measurements/calculations? Also, i'm confused... do you use ghostcript or xpdf? Could you maybe post a quick summary of your toolchain either here or on the "pythonized pdfrasterfarian" thread?
