Werter Peter,

Definitely I don't assume this.

This I kow also.

It's not, but this is not my point.  My question is:

     Is there a command-line-equivalent to putting "\pdfoutput=0" in 
the source file?

Got it?  Instead of writing "\pdfoutput=0" in the source I'ld like to 
do this in the command line, regardless of using microtype or not.
