A very good reason why it would be useful to have an option to produce 
linearized pdf inside pdftex itself is that pdftex can produce output 
that is not compatible with pdfopt.

For my book in progress, this is a concern.  With over 500 pages and 4MB 
by now, it is difficult to ask the reader to wait until downloading has 
completed before (s)he gets to see the first page.
