Interesting utility, Herbert!

But, there is a problem with it on my system, but it probably is because
I have not upgraded the poppler tools in a long time.

On my system, the output eps is clipped at the right side. Adding the
-W option does not seem to have any effect.

If there isn't any clipping in your list2.eps, and color information
is preserved, and conversion of that list2.eps to pdf retains the fonts
in vector form, I would definitely say that pdftocairo is a winner here.

  Cheers and thanks,
