I don't like the license it's under, but at least it permits
redistribution ;)  Found it's home page on the internet (thanks google!)

berlios has a familiar-looking developer site ;-)

The script itself lets you set a few options, like the colours for
hyperlinks & citations, paper size, overriding the document title and
author; it also handles latex's irritating behaviour of needing to be
run multiple times to update page numbering etc.  Naturally pdflatex is
used to create the output.
