@cfr No, you don't need the =. \let\a\b and \let\a=\b are the same. I find the second easier to see at a glance what it's doing so tend to put the equals sign in place. I understand that in the Good Old Days, tokens were precious and so the = was frowned upon. Nowadays, we're gluttonous about tokens so the difference is in the mind of the beholder.

@cfr Oh, I was just helicoptering in with how to remove the \newpage from \includepdf since that was something I'd wanted to do myself. I hadn't thought about the context. Sorry.

@cfr I find \includepdf easier when I want a full page inclusion, ie I want the PDF page as the background to the current page, possibly for further annotation. With \includegraphics then TeX complains if the graphic is larger than the available text space on the page.

\let\newpage=\relax before the \includepdf kills the new page (best be inside a group at that point).

@LaRiFaRi Did you not notice the date on this one? The likelihood of me being able to remember what on earth I was thinking back then is almost surely zero. I have 900 tex files in my scratch directory and I'm not looking through them all to find the one with the solution in it.

@Johannes_B Feel free to edit the answer with that change. As this is over three years old, I don't feel able to resurrect it myself.
