My terminology was poorly chosen. If indeed you or anyone wants
to translate pdf code to LaTeX code then they do so with my best
wishes. A method for handling embedded graphics will need to be
devised. The first step would be to translate the pdf to
PostScript which is lossless and yields much more readable code.
