With python, there's always hope.

In the CVS (sorry no distribution at the time) you'll find
an example page-extract.

pdfplayground is limited at the moment to PDF <= 1.4.
If you want to do more with .pdfs you'll probably need at least
a basic understanding of the PDF specification. pdfplayground
is focused at low-level .pdf (by implementation resources...).

Thomas Lotze is also preparing a pdf reader/writer project:

So is David Boddie:

Wishing a happy day

I've used ReportLab's PageCatcher. It isn't free, but
I've gladly paid for the functionality it gives me.
