I'm using pdfunite from poppler

Even though they're both java based, I was thinking about the possibility of instead using sejda (command line version of pdfsam) or pdftk, to create the pdf with bookmarks.
I found that there is now a very similar project which already creates the pdf with bookmarks. It is using gs, so it will have the performance problems I was complaining about, whereas sejda or pdfsam wouldn't.

Hi guys,
I have reworked both scripts a reasonable amount.
Changes include:
- searches for pdfs by mime type rather than file extension (should be more reliable - I assume slower, but it can still join 960 files pretty quickly here!).
- less Puppy specific (gui version doesn't assume rox).
- uses natsort if available, otherwise coreutils `sort -V`, with plain sort as last resort.
- uses pdfunite if available, otherwise gs.
- at least one gui bugfix (I'm rather surprised no one reported the bug - does everybody have the same use pattern as me?).
- gui related error checking, cosmetic enhancements, and ability to enter the program you want to use to view (or postprocess Smile ) the output file.
- main gui isn't blocked by the help window or the browser launched to visit this thread).
- better handling of temporary files (multiple instances won't mess with each other, and it should be more portable).
