I have a PDF creator in my SLIMP3 website's download area:

http://www.slimp3.rtfm.info/downloads/index.html

It doesn't do a lot at the moment (simple format, no album art etc.),
but it may make a reasonable starting point.

You'll need Perl to run the script, of course, so Windows users are
out of luck unless they have ActiveState, or whatever.

I'll be happy to publish any useful modifications submitted.
