Albert, this commit gave me differences in pdftotext output for 2 of
my pdf files:

 - opt-content/microtype.pdf: It fixes this document, we were
 extracting pdf TeX instead of pdfTeX.
 - opt-content/publikationen.Document.100193.pdf: it's difficult to
 say whether it fixes or breaks this one. The output is weird in both
 cases and it doesn't match acroread either.

I'm not sure if you have those documents, maybe with another name
(should we identify the pdfs by its md5sum too?), so let me know if
you want them.

It would be great if you could run the tests with your pdfs to see
whether there are more pdfs giving different output, and if it's
unacceptable for any of them revert or try to fix the commit.
