As an aside, if I understand the function
of \pdfprimitive correctly (that is, it
allows access to a primitive whose name
has been stolen), then it is (IMHO)
singularly ill-named, in that it allows
access to /all/ primitives (e.g., \show)
rather than just PDF primitives ...  If
this is the case, is there any chance of
a better choice of name in a future release ?
