on NSF Fastlane proposal submissions....

Nelson Beebe has been working this over---at the least, pdfTeX, etc. are
_not_ on the same plane as PDFWriter (a horrid kludge which uses the
printer driver mechanism to convert to the native graphics format (i.e.
QuickDraw or Windows MetaFile) and then translate that to PDF with
results as one might expect after such translation / mangling).

The biggest problem is one of font sub-setting / encoding. And since the
NSF dropped the requirement of all fonts being sub-setted seemst to be
pretty much ``in the bag''.

The following Google search seems to come up with lots of (potentially)
useful pages:
