i don't think this is jeffrey's point.  he merely says, that the
market forces he is subject to require him to use a print house that
doesn't (apparently) have 5.3.4a; so pdftex is no use for him.

everyone seems determined to persuade the monolith that jeffrey deals
with that _they_ are at fault.  one might as well persuade bill gates
that _he's_ at fault in selling windoze, afaict.

it's plain that, in jeffrey's case, pdftex is useless, and will remain
