Topic: Updating PDF Properties via API

I've seen countless pdf creation questions resulting in the answer "can't run acrobat on a server, so the question is moot," but still I'm curious:
1) I don't want to create PDFs on the server. I want to take an existing PDF and update its properties (so it can be found more easily via the intranet's search engine and the person who created the pdf can set the property values via a webform). Does this still apply?
2) I see in Adobe's documentation that it's actually ok to create pdf's over a network (internal) as long as each person accessing the file has a separate license (which is my case). Am I reading this incorrectly? Either way, does modifying a pdf's properties constitute "creating a pdf file over a network?"
3) I'm running into the same DCOM issues as everyone else. I'd like to stick with Adobe because my company already has a relationship with them, but I can't figure out whether they have a product that does this other than the one I'm already using (Acrobat 5.0). I see Distiller Server is a product of theirs and it *looks* like it might be able to do the same thing, but it a) costs money and b) may not.
Any ideas? Anyone? Aandi? Anyone? hehe
