I find reasoning on "bloat" interesting, given that even acroread5 is
25MB large, not counting the linux emulation dependencies. So just to
make sure. You are using completely outdated software, that can't deal
with many modern PDFs and has a large list of known security issues,
because it is less bloated than the newer Adobe Reader and a binary blob
compared to the poppler based tools?
