I don't follow.

If there's a code improvement here, is there any reason not to push
this up to the xpdf code as well?

And is "merge with xpdf" intended to be a regular activity for the
foreseeable future? Is there any effort to get xpdf and poppler
unforked, (that is, to make xpdf depend on poppler)?
