Ahh, so you are a let's go round more corners than we need to
just for the fun of it, man, are you?  Now why exactly, would I
want to convert a djvu file to a PDF?

To quote the DjvLibre site:

'DjVu can advantageously replace PDF, PS, TIFF, JPEG, and
GIF for distributing scanned documents, digital documents, or
high-resolution pictures. DjVu content downloads faster, displays
and renders faster, looks nicer on a screen, and consume less
client resources than competing formats. DjVu images display
instantly and can be smoothly zoomed and panned with no
lengthy re-rendering.'

So I repeat again, why would I wish to convert to a PDF?

I was thinking more of a djvu2swf ( while SWF is still a dominant
force )
