i took a peek at that one and it seems like it's purely output
oriented. i'll fiddle some more with it but right now i'm looking at
pdfbox and as of last night - i did a little java-jitsu via ikvmc and
i'm about 75% of the way to completion. just a couple of runtime
errors to figure out (object reference bugs).
but boy getting ikvm built has been a royal pain in the ass. (building
nant + jikes + ikvm_sources = ikvm is ugly as sin)
if the ugliness continues, I'm going to do a little code tracing and
rehack parts of pdfbox inorder to get the text extraction code
