But do you *EXPECT* that everyone will have pdftex 1.40.1 installed? Is
it obligatory?

In Debian we wont have it for some time, because it takes some time to
create new packages for TeX Live 2006/7.

Shouldn't the usage of a new primitive somehow be shielded in case
someone uses pdftex 1.30.5?

Best wishes
