I apologize for this phrase which may look rude (which was not
intentional, and i realized that after sending the message).

I just wanted to say that it does not make sense to have tons of
altpdf*** scripts for several reasons (main of which is that you
cannot guarantee to have altpdf*** for every possible format; also it
bloats the binary dirs), and it is much better to use just one script.
