I've contacted several times xpdf author, some went like
"Hi Derek i have that small patch that fixes foo"
"Hi Albert the development code is now much different so your code is
worthless, but thanks anyway"
and others like
"Hi Derek hi have this rather big patch that changes char * usage to const
char * usage to reduce gcc warnings"
"Hi Albert but i don't give a damn about gcc warnings so your code is
worthless, thanks anyway"
What i mean is that he is unlikely to want any of our changes so IMHO we can
go with GPL.
