Surely it is not a violation of Acrobat Pro EULA:  the whole idea of
arenable is to perform some functions available in Acrobat. If written
for UNIX it would be even substitution for Acrobat missing on these
platforms (sometime ago Adobe explained that they do not consider
Acrobat for Linux commercially feasible).

Reader is the other story and one must use Reader to exploit the files
tempered by arenable. Anyway, I have heard that Reader 8 is able to
recognize such files.

BTW, Acrobat 9 is officially announced and public trial would start
"soon" (see http://www.adobe.com > Downloads > Acrobat 9)
