Well, I have such a thingie. I started it as a Cocoa project a long  
time ago and it was supposed to be a basic geometry drawing program à  
la geogebra (that was before I discovered it)

It is totally undocumented and non localized (only in French). What  
it does is put the pdf or eps  file as a background and allows the  
drawing of simple geometric entities, writing of labels and setting  
of marks. One can then select (clip) a part of the drawing and export  
it as pdf+bb...

I'll put a copy of it on my home page if one is interested...
