Given their size, they can't be compressed all too much (5 to 10MB PDF
per piece, presumably generated by Imagemagick). I already wrote a
ticket for replacing Imagemagick with sam2p (I guess I trust Peter
more about squeezing size), but I don't know whether my guesses about
which does what in image preprocessing are correct.
