I've applied to the master branch but not to stable branch. They'll be there
in poppler 0.12
You probably know it, but i'm going to say it anyway :D
Using poppler internals is totally discouraged and we will change the API
there as we need and as we like, what we should really be doing is creating a
stable simple and clean C++ API in top of the beast that poppler core is, but
that is a lot of work i can't command (i can't even get time to review your
color management patch :-/)
