I agree, i was thinking of doing it only for KDE since we have copies of xpdf
inside KPDF, Koffice, and a the pdf kfile_plugin requires you to have xpdf
installed that is a bit hilarious thinking the xpdf sources are just two
folders away :-D
But having more eyes on that xpdf lib would be a good thing so if has to go
inside freedesktop i think it can be good. (The more the merrier)
Now the problems:
Calling it libxpdf would be a bit rude IMHO.
- What says xpdf author?
I know the code is GPL so we can do with it what we want, but we should to
tell him. Maybe the he'll open a CVS/SVN/wathever and let some of us work
