one forked question: does using Ghostscript to reduce the filesize crop 
the image?

command line seen here: 

It is quite a pain that the whole image is exported, moreover if the 
image appears several times in the document, it is embedded as much 
times in the PDF instead of using a reference to one image object.

Last week, I made an A6 flyer front/back with only one image and quite 
some vectors. Scribus made a filesize of more than 7Mo, putting it 
through Ghostscript lowered it to 1.6Mo.
We could say we could stick to this solution, but sometimes gs complains 
and don't want to process the pdf...

hope this is something to be considered?
