Thanks.  One of my constraints is that I'm assembling a collection of
software that can be distributed to multiple sites to provide a hands-off
workflow.  Unfortunately, I can't include anything that uses Ghostscript,
since that can't be redistributed.  Since ImageMagick also uses Ghostscript
for PDF, that's out too.  I know pdftops would work, but that only gets me
part way there.  I'm not familiar with ps2raster or pstopnm, but I'll look
into them.
