Sub_title: Why not strip out modules

I'm long away from the simple implementation, but Adobe Acrobat Readers have, grown in size. But much of that growth is due to the addition of fully detachable libraries to realize sophisticated effects capabilities that the overwhelming number of document producers do not employ. But, document producers, mostly lay, use the latest version of Acrobat Creator, and unless an administrator has set the Acrobat file producer to label the output with the minimum sufficient version to read the document for maximum compatibility, the requirement will default to version of the Adobe creator.

The solution is to produce a .pet or .sfs with the exotic libraries removed. At least several generations ago, the worst that would happen was that they would be reported missing on Reader execution, and the user would be warned. But the .pdf file would be read. With another non-MS OS, Reader size, load time, and memory footprint could all be drastically reduced.
