Hi Vladimir,

> since the new pdftex has improvements related to transformations:
>   - Transformation matrices can now be manipulated more cleanly:
>     Currently matrix changes are done and hidden inside \pdfliteral nodes;
>     pdfTeX doesn't parse its contents and does not know the new settings of
>     the transform matrix. Thus the new primitives to save pdfTeX from
>     parsing \pdfliteral contents and to notify pdfTeX about matrix changes
>     to use them in calculating link and anchor positions.
>     - \pdfsetmatrix{<a> <b> <c> <d>}
>       is the equivalent to \pdfliteral{<a> <b> <c> <d> 0 0 cm}
>     - \pdfsave is the equivalent to \pdfliteral{q}
>     - \pdfrestore is the equivalent to \pdfliteral{Q}
> it would be nice to make pdftex.def aware of these new features.
