Purely psychological: LaTeX communicate commands to Acrobat to perform
certain tasks and instructions how to configure are Windows oriented;
so apriori it is nort clear that it will work on Mac.

TeXLive team does not want to put AcroTeX into TL - and they have a
very good reason. It would be nice to have a very precise instructions
- which files go where in texmf-local TDS and how to hook up Acrobat
(for MacOSX). Also it would be nice to have instructions how to
process on computer without Acrobat and then postprocess on computer
with Acrobat but without TeX
