That page is very confusing to me, haven't managed to find a way to register. Would it be OK to remind you here, in July?

ok. That is fine. I am totally convinced.
I can add an option, say "creator" that writes bidi as the creator of the PDF file and otherwise does nothing.
But please note that when bidi writes itself as the creator of the PDF file, it provides some useful information such as version and revision number.
And in case of other packages such as hyperref, this is bidi that wins to be credited as the PDF creator because:
1- bidi does not allow many packages to be loaded after itself and if you load them after bidi, you get error.
2- bidi writes itself as the PDF creator at the beginning of the document.
Unfortunately, I currently do not have time to change bidi and submit an Update to CTAN. The earliest time would be July. So I suggest that any of you make a bug report http://developer.berlios.de/mantis/my_view_page.php  so that I will not forget to fix this. To report a bug, you should register in berlios.
