Ok. I would recommend you to update to the svn trunk version of  
Forrest to get proper configurability of the pdf output plugin in

Yes, this is the problem targeted in the work on the pdf plugin lately.

In the current svn trunk version of Forrest (0.9-dev), this is solved.  
As Ross pointed out, the new ways of configuring the pdf output isn't  
very well documented, but the information is available in the mail  

Also, the current trunk uses a much improved FOP version, which in  
itself has made user configurations easier.

This is not supported anymore, but using the Locationmap feature, it  
is easy to override specific processing steps as part of the user  

What kind of changes would you like to have?
