Hans, welcome in the "closed source" world. :-)

Some RIPs output the /Producer key on each printed plate. Reading
"pdfTeX <version>" there might give others (i.e. competitors) the
idea of also using pdfTeX and could irritate customers ("what is
this pdfTeX? I though the plates were done by ArtCom?").

And the documentation tells me I can change the key...

Unlikely as the files are LARGE (250 MB is common). Instead we'll
do an incremental update and attach a changed info dict.
