CUPS (www.cups.org) uses a wrapper around the pdftops utility from poppler in order to handle PDF documents. Previously, a private fork of xpdf had been used, with some additions to make it behave more usefully as a CUPS filter.
It would be really useful if pdftops could be enhanced in the following ways:
pdftops could be instructed to always produce portrait PostScript documents, rotating the input pages as needed
correct BoundingBox DSC comments for each page in the output
an additional comment 'cupsRotation: 0' added indicating that no further rotation of the document is required
