Thanks for the hint Patrick. I added my story there 
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83642#c4), including patch 
and sample outcome. Comments welcome. It targets the QT5 bindings. 
Splitting up per binding could be a way to work together, if there's 
interest in doing so.

Nice project, poppler functionality brought to JS. Are there upstream 
projects using this already?

Using pdfcomment and poppler based readers I failed to create /AP 
entries for any annotation type, and to generate fancy types like 
widgets annotations. So maybe non-free is the only readily available

Just downloaded some existing from you, thanks:) If you create more 
sometime, I'd be interested.
