There is a wonderful program called "qpdf" that converts a
PDF file into an equivalent PDF file optionally performing a
number of conversions, such as uncompressing the contents
(then it's called a "QDF file", but it's still legal PDF).
It has a companion program "fix-qdf" that updates the internal
pointers in case the byte-offsets of the objects shift around
when you edit the file.
