I demoed experimental code at last CLUG called PandaEdit. PandaEdit uses
PandaLex to parse PDF documents, and then displays them in an editable
form onscreen. It also uses Panda to write the PDFs back out.

Do you notice a naming theme?

I don't think it would be too hard to disable the UI from PandaEdit, and
then tweak the code to append commands to the page description stream. The
new document would however be new, not a tweak to the old document.

I would happy take your money ;)

You can get the PandaEdit code from
http://www.stillhq.com/extracted/pandaedit, but because it is early on,
it's not amazingly documented.
