If other people agree that my <>patch 
solves the problem of exorbitant file sizes, we might live well without ghostscripts 

I'm not really clear on how this works, I'm curious as to where the final embedded fonts are inserted. However, if it does work it would be a good thing from my point of view.

It's amazing to see how putative minor changes affect pdf file sizes: The total 
size of the pdfs of our documentation (11108 pages in 47 pdfs) varies between 
96MB and 306MB dependent on some minor changes in the our code and the 
ghostscript version used.

The good news: The winning solution (96MB)

 * is possible without PDFDontUseFontObjectNum
 * is possible with HEAD of git master of ghostscript.
