Hi Joachim,

Actually, I did.  In my original posting, perhaps I should have been more specific.  I was trying to find a "GUI" utility which would allow for these functions and also allow for a finer degree of control than I've been able to obtain with the command line utilities.  Eventually (perhaps not in the first or second iteration), I would like to have something very similar to the PDF optimizer available with the full version of Acrobat.

While doing so, I looked high and low for something that would make it easy to optimize a PDF for web distribution.  (Specifically, I wanted a tool to downsample images, convert between different color spaces, and streamline the PDF for web viewing.)
