this is a lot of files, much more beyond my expectation

i see some possible approaches:
- publish this list, along with a call for authors to review their files 
and resubmit correct versions where is appropriate. this has the 
advantage that we will get the best version of files and the work will 
be distributed. the disadvantage: possibly our announcement will not 
reach all authors;
- have one person or a small group of persons to review and correct the 
files. advantage: we know all files will be processed, disadvantage: 
this is a long work, will be very boring and in some cases is hard to 
detect the problem
- use a scripted method to remove "fill-opacity:0.75000000;". advantage: 
most time effective, disadvantage: can produce unwanted results, files 
may need to be reviewed after this operation;
- correct only the files reported to be broken and wait for other 
reports before correcting other files. advantage: less work, 
disadvantage: we will knowingly distribute broken files.
