Hi again!

Sorry for this late but therefore now more correct answer. As you 
probably know I was very busy implementing overprint, and after that I 
took some "free poppler" days!

I took now Your resent patch as base, completely reviewed it (hopefully 
nothing missing) and add the small utility programs pdfextract and 
pdfmerge to the patch after learning a little bit more about git. This 
patch is now created under ubuntu, so hopefully it is not bigger as 
necessary and not so scary. I also renamed the methods according to the 
poppler naming conventions, and the utility programs now give up with an 
error message, if the or one of the PDFs are encrypted instead of 
creating unreadable PDF(s).

I removed them now.

It would be a greater task to move it to pdfextract (and in addition all 
the mark methods), but it is probably doable. But on the other hand 
there are already routines like saveAs in PDFDoc, so I just rename it to 
savePageAs to clearify it. But if You still insist to remove them, I'll 
try it.

Hopefully we are not doing work twice. As I read once again Your 
posting, I thought that I should do something more on it.
