 * 
 * Transparent stamp for PDF/A-1:
 * Apply a transparent stamp to an existing PDF/A-1 document while maintaining
 * PDF/A-1 conformance.
 * 
 * Import all pages from an existing PDF/A-1 document and place a stamp on the
 * page. The stamp is filled with a pattern color, where the pattern consists of
 * a bitmap. The bitmap is used as a mask to create a certain percentage of
 * transparency. This is required since real transparency is not allowed in
 * PDF/A-1. Transparency by pattern color is PDF/A-1 compatible, so we use it to
 * apply a transparent stamp on a PDF/A-1 document while maintaining PDF/A-1
 * conformance.
 * 
 * Note that this trick is only necessary for PDF/A-1, as true PDF
 * transparency is allowed beginning with PDF/A-2.
 * 
 * If the transparent stamp is not visible in Acrobat (or is visible only at
 * certain zoom levels) you can set the following in Acrobat X:
 * Edit, Preferences, General, Page Display: disable "Use 2D graphics
 * acceleration" and enable "Smooth images".
 * 
 * Required software: PDFlib+PDI/PPS 9.0.2
 * Required data: PDF document
