That's my goal, though first I want to iron out a few wrinkles.

True.  I may instead just have my perl script replace the @VERSION@
string itself; I don't think that there are any other (intentional -
see bug 3425) differences between what's tagged in the cvs and what's
in the release kit.

Yes, that's a much deeper issue with html2ps and the vagueries of
non-ascii character set encodings.  If I come up with a good solution
to it, I'll be improving my copy of html2ps; it stems most immediately
from the fact that the character that is non-breaking-white-space in
the adobe character encoding is apparently the euro sign in recent
versions of the PDFDocEncoding.  This means that I need to adjust the
postscript produced by html2ps a bit, which could get tricky.  If
there were any &nbsp; charaters in the actual titles themselves, they
too would become euro signs.
