    Doing simple concatenation of PDF files.

    At the moment I'm invoking pdftk from within Ruby...
    works fine, but feels ugly, and I don't want the dependency.

    Any good way to do this? Even a one-off would be welcome...

    Cheers,
    Hal

    This is what I tell Prawn users to do, so unfortunately for now I
    don't have a better suggestion.
    PDF merge is a non-trivial operation. But we may end up with
    something sooner or later...
