Thanks to Lars, I was able to slave my way through this last night (and
slaving it was!), and today made a wiki page outlining the process using
a Python script as an example:


Using LaTeX and render frames for this is a LOT of work unless you have
an excellent understanding of LaTeX to begin with. Even so, as the
screenshots show, it's not clear to me that the render frame method is
worthwhile. One might even question how much we need render frames given
the ability to import PDFs as vectors in 1.5.x versions.
