Well, the pdftohtml project is GPL, which can't be surprising since it's 
linking to the xpdf code.  So license-wise we're ok.  And I wasn't as 
such planning to take over this project, just to merge in a snapshot. 
However, looking at the upstream project, it's been more than 2 years 
since anybody touched the code and the mailing list is all spam.

So, I'm cc'ing Mikhail Kruk, the current pdftohtml maintainer on this 
mail, to suggest that we move the pdftohtml code to poppler cvs.  I 
either case I don't see a problem with keeping a copy of the code in the 
utils directory.
