Thanks Ron.  I had not noticed pdftk, that's a great start; and indeed 
fpdi may do what I need after all -- I didn't read far enough, many 
pages on the fpdi site give a lot of attention to its pdf templates 
feature.  However I'd love to hear from someone who has been down a 
similar road before.  Also since I wrote I've been told the client wants 
to keep the initial cost low;  I recalled that Sitepoint had a 
newsletter article[0] about PDF Stamping recently, but the el cheapo 
solution is Win-only (go figure) while their chosen solution was $4500.
