This doesn't seem to be the case when I tried it just now. Then again, it
didn't exactly compress the files I tried it on. But the graphics inside the
PDF (PDF graphics inserted as part of a run of PDFLaTeX) were definitely
still full definition and not JPEG bitmapped - They were still full
definition no matter how much I magnified the view of the file.
