I'm a dumbass...for approach 2, i just need to make a new PDF::Writer 
object and test my section size on that.  What would be nicer though, is 
instead of redoing everything on my real pdf after testing it on the 
temp one, i could just copy the contents across.  Does anyone know a way 
to do that?

thanks
max
