DjVu hidden text → PDF?


Is there a way to make a PDF of only the hidden text layer of a DjVu file?

I know how to use
Code:
djvused myfile.djvu -e 'output-txt' > myfile.dsed
to output a DjVu script that includes the x,y coordinates of each word of each page, but how would I convert that to a PS or PDF? I'm sure someone has a script.

The dsed file begins with S-expressions like this (click here for more info):
Code:
select; remove-txt
# ------------------------- 
select "myfile_0000.djvu"
set-txt
(page 108 107 1176 1725
 (column 941 1694 1176 1725
  (region 941 1694 1176 1725
   (para 941 1694 1176 1725
    (line 941 1694 1176 1725
     (word 941 1694 999 1723 "another")
     (word 1024 1696 1176 1725 "word")))))
 (column 108 107 805 1519
  (region 108 107 805 1519
   (para 226 1491 701 1519
    (line 226 1491 701 1519
     (word 226 1491 701 1519 "example")))
   (para 350 1370 534 1396
etc…

Thanks
