but you mentioned that you plan to rename lots of existing
non-PDF-related primitives by stripping the "pdf" prefix; this would
merely create problem for macro-package writers... and it doesn't
sound like it couldn't be avoided; on the other hand, avoiding
renaming of existing primitives sounds like a reasonable way to
improve compatibility. :)
