"Exaggerating a bit" with the cookie metaphore, I see.  ;-)  Sure,
maybe the consumer has a RIGHT to know that the PDF was created with
iText, but he almost certainly doesn't care.

In the interest of full disclosure, I think I should mention that the
message you're reading now was sent through Gmail, which I accessed on
a TMobile-locked BlackBerry Bold 9780 (connected over WiFi to a
Linksys router), running v6.0.0.285 of the BlackBerry OS.  Portions of
the browser are copyright 4thpass.

If you want to discuss the opinions I've expressed here, please do so
in a way that respects people's right to know which technologies I
used to express them.
