I patched it to return \Umathchar in the case of \mathchar in 0.89

no fundamental changes, just some fixes / improvements, and if course 
new bugglets

new backend things:

\pdfvariable pkfixeddpi = integer % > 0 : use only default dpi (so one 
can do with one high res instance)

  \pdfvariable ignoreunknownimages = integer : > 0 : ignore missing and 
inject something empty (to be used with care)

and you can do this:

\edef\foo{\pdfvariable foo}
\def \oof{foo}

\ifx\foo\oof don't fool me\fi

(side effect of no longer aborting on missing so you can if you want 
implement a catch)
