Follow-up Comment #6, bug #64061 (project groff):

And because I couldn't resist testing my mad sed stunta skillz, here's a proof
of concept.

$ cat ATTIC/fake-pdfinfo 

cat <<EOF

$ cat ATTIC/stunt.sed
/Page  *size:/s/Page  *size:  *//;h;s/\([0-9.]*\)  *x  *\([0-9.]*\).*$/.nr
pdfpic*width  (p;\1)/p;x;s/\([0-9.]*\)  *x  *\([0-9.]*\).*$/.nr pdfpic*height
$ ./ATTIC/fake-pdfinfo | sed -n -f ATTIC/stunt.sed
.nr pdfpic*width  (p;612)
.nr pdfpic*height (p;792)

It worked on the first try.  Maybe I'm a less crap sed programmer than I

But at any rate I feel this is a bit lengthy, so I think I prefer solution 3,

I'm sure the FSF wouldn't appreciate me putting a "licensable" photograph of a
skateboarder's skull about to meet high-speed concrete, so the reader will
just have to imagine one.
