I would argue that using the CropBox when present is actually a requirement of ISO 32000-1, so that if you do NOT do that by default, then you're violating the standard.

But I also understand the "changing default behavior after many years" argument...

Not going to happen, people has been using pdftoppm since ages and there's no 
reason for a behaviour change.

If you are going to report bugs i personally prefer bugzilla since it is much 
easier to keep track of things, if you are going to send patches both the list 
and the bugzilla are as good.
