Not that we need _more_ options at this point, since two others now have
working implementations, but I don't think this particular objection has much
weight: the grep wasn't eliminated because it was incurring a noticeable
performance penalty, but because it was deemed unnecessary on code inspection.
 I doubt the overhead of two invocations of pdfinfo would make a significant
runtime difference even in a document that included dozens of PDFs.

Ultimately, though, this seems the least elegant of the three proposals, so
even though it was mine initially, I'm happy to see it discarded.
