[thelist] Merging an FDF and a PDF

Here's the scenario:

We are setting up an application where a potential new client signs up to be a
client.  We require a tax form to be signed by them and sent back to us.  To do
that, we want to automatically e-mail them the PDF form already filled out for
them to print out. Using Cold Fusion (cfobject, primarily), I have managed to
create an FDF with the updated field values for this client.

My question is this:  How can I merge the fdf and the pdf so that I can just
e-mail out the merged PDF?  [there is a program called PDFMerge (I believe)
which accomplishes something like this, but we're not able to spend $2k for this

If we were just outputting the PDF on the user's screen, then it'd be easier,
but we want to mail them the PDF.    Plus, we'd like this to be a file so they
can save it on their hard drive if they wish.

Any ideas?
