About the PDF bookmark issue with xdv2pdf, I posted a message to the  
Cocoa-dev list and actually got a reply from the PDFKit engineer. I  
sent the sample to him and it does work in Leopard. This is his reply:

> The PDF you attached does indeed work. in Leopard.  Thanks for  
> sending it.
> For Tiger, I can think of no obvious workaround using PDF Kit  
> itself.  In Tiger I relied upon some CoreGraphics SPI and it didn't  
> even look for action attributes.  The code migrated out of CG and  
> into PDF Kit for Leopard so I took direct control.  The PDF spec is  
> big and always changing so PDF Kit is probably always going to  
> represent a subset.  Generally that hasn't been too huge a problem  
> since we try to at the very least cover the 99% cases — and in fact  
> in the "real world" Outline's with Actions are the exception.
