This doesn't work, and isn't planned either.  I would have to have a
full PDF interpreter to display the object on the screen.  Generating
PDF output might be possible, but embedding PDF isn't that trivial
(there's been quite some work in pdftex to make it possible, and it
doesn't always work either).

I may add this sometime when I really have nothing better to do.  For
the moment, my priority would be to fix the problems with pdftoipe.
