I don't need to know about the resolution of the images, I need to:
- check to see if the ad file exists
- get the dimensions of the ad's trim box
- compare the physical size of the ad to its booked size using a lookup
- add a line to a table w/ the results
TeX was the only tool which allowed me to do _all_ of those things w/ a
A CLI tool which reports on physical ad size still has to be supported by a
bunch of other tools and adds a lot of overhead.
The only (minor) problem w/ using TeX is that it embeds the .pdf for each
ad even though it's never used, only measured --- is there a way to release
