I disagree, keep for sure that if ever i get myself to use poppler for future 
kpdf versions i'm not going to ask kde people to install cairo if it is not 
absolutely necessary. And for now i don't see any reason more than "we are 
uber cool and use the buzzworder cairo". No offense to cairo developers, it's 
a cool technology but it's a bit much to ask people to install cairo instead 
of using splash when both have a similar performance. Optimizing only cairo 
and not splash is just another way of beign more gnomeish than kdeish.
