PDF::Create (or alike) to create watermark for existing pdf file? - Perl / CGI

Dear perl-ists: I tried out PDF::Create 0.01 (from cpan), and it is great. kudos, fabian. creates wonderful, clean, small valid pdf output. my only complaint is that its numbering system. on cpan, it seems to be 0.01 ever since 1999? ;-) alas, my need is slightly more complex. I need to underlay an already existing pdf file that was created by pdftex with a page that I can now create with PDF::Create (or some other program). that is, the latter should become the background ("watermark") for the former. to re-pdftex the former would simply take too long, so a personalized ...

    Default PDF::Create (or alike) to create watermark for existing pdf file?


    Dear perl-ists: I tried out PDF::Create 0.01 (from cpan), and it is
    great. kudos, fabian. creates wonderful, clean, small valid pdf
    output. my only complaint is that its numbering system. on cpan, it
    seems to be 0.01 ever since 1999? ;-)

    alas, my need is slightly more complex. I need to underlay an already
    existing pdf file that was created by pdftex with a page that I can now
    create with PDF::Create (or some other program). that is, the latter
    should become the background ("watermark") for the former. to
    re-pdftex the former would simply take too long, so a personalized
    watermark is my next best solution.

    now, PDF::Reuse seems feasible, but I could see no example of how to
    use it to put up a watermark on every page for an existing pdf file.
    if it works, does someone have an example?

    or are there any other modules that can do what I need?

    sincerely,

    let me add: PDF::Create seems to be able to create many pages, but
    itself it can only use the first page from an existing .pdf file, at
    least as far as I can tell. alas, my pdf doent has many pages, not
    just one! :-(. did I misunderstand this? /iaw
