comment Execute a command at the start of every page
@MMA for this kind of typographic nicety I think it's ok to do it manually with a manual pagebreak and geometry change command.

@egreg limited forms of geometry change should be possible (eg, changing the top/bottom margins, or shifting the textblock left/right), just not ones that change the width of the textblock, since that has already been frozen.

comment Execute a command at the start of every page
What's the ultimate effect you're trying to achieve here? There are various mechanisms depending on what you have in mind: eg, something like adding a "DRAFT" watermark, or something like adding a header/footer, or something like putting "Theorem 2 (contd.)" if a previous section is overflowing onto this page.

comment How to create small PDF files for the Internet
@Colas That's a message from multivalent tool.pdf.Compress and you should ignore it. It produces a "compact PDF" file, that is not a true PDF and can't be read by anything other than multivalent tools (unfortunately, since it generally is significantly smaller, due to using bzip2 compression and other sensible but not-standard-conforming techniques).

@giordano the python files are now at github.com/pts/pdfsizeopt but Péter is waiting to resolve the DMCA issues before putting the other files back.
