Yes, most of the -DSAFER problems has been fixed.  Unfortunately
pdfopt doesn't work properly yet, even if you remove -dSAFER (and add
-dBATCH).  It works for some smaller documents created by pdftex but
either crashes with larger docs or doesn't move the object table to
the beginning of the file.  I hope that these bugs will be fixed in
the near future because pdfopt is quite interesting for pdftex users.

There are still very few bugs in the scripts.  -dBATCH should be added
to pf2afm, and ps2ascii doesn't work.  The other scripts seem to work.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
