If one converts a PDF file which has pages with different sizes (example attached) and converts it to PostScript with pdftops, the resulting file has all pages scaled to the size of the first page.
I have tried without command line options (except the file names) and with many different combinations of "-nocrop", "-noshrink", "-nocenter", "-paper match" and did not get a PostScript file with the original page sizes. Giving "-noshrink" keeps the page content in its original size, but the page size still stays the size of the first page and so all pages bigger than the first page get cropped.
This way pdftops cannot be used to print a PDF file with pages of different sizes on a PostScript printer which provides the different paper sizes on its different trays.
