That's exactly the way as I make it right now, but it's not really the 
right way and prevents last time changes inside the PDF, like changing 
the backgound denstity when already in the printing agency...

Using the /op attributes together with \pdfliteral or \pdfobj would be 
exactly the right way, except that I couldn't firgure out the right 
syntax how to use them together in pdftex.
