so far, i've found imagemagick. scan everything to PNG and then i run:
convert -verbose -threshold 50% -quality 100 -type bilevel -adjoin *.png
it worked well, about 45 MB of grayscale images to 2.5 MB PDF file.
but, it's dog slow and takes a ton of memory, for just 30 images it took
about 30 minutes and all kinds of swap memory.. brought my system to
it's knees (it's a six year old laptop though).
it would be nice if there was a way to force the backend to offer
lineart, maybe by making some changes in the source? i'd like to see if
