Round-trip PDF handling & conversions

There are numerous situations that demand the ability to expertly handle materials originally provided in PDF format.

These situations generally require:
A reliable method for element extraction (best formats for images, formatted text &/or CSS, references/citations, etc.) to pure HTML.
Reliable & reusable conversion approaches (i.e. direct PDF to PO, PDF to HTML to PO, PO to HTML to PDF, PO to PDF, etc., perhaps employing some kind of intermediary templating)
A templating approach to preserving all formatting throughout any conversion process (e.g. PDF to newsletter, PDF-based PO to newsletter, etc.. Perhaps TeX/LaTeX could help here)

While the lack of such ability was a bit annoying three years ago, it has now become somewhat of an imperative that we finally get this as-of-yet missing tool developed, tested and proven.

It would be even more ideal if this project could also mitigate the issues described in another potential dev project looking to preserve html/css formatting. ;)

@sgh: created a python script that takes .po files and turns them into Latex. The code is here: https://github.com/sgh/tzm-po2tex

Here's also a preview of the resulting PDF: http://sgh.dk/~sgh/tzmd.pdf (this is for the TZM Defined document).

Any thoughts?
