What are your timings? I tested it and see that
poppler_page_get_text_layout_for_area and poppler_page_get_text_for_area
are ~30% slower for emptyish pages and <~5% slower for more populated
pages. Absolutely it is O(1ms) so doesn't seem a concern to me, but I'm
curious what problem you're encountering.
