While I very much like the idea of kpdf being based on xpdf
(preferring xpdf over gs/gv, too) it concerns me that it comes with
a copy of the whole xpdf sources. Thinking less of new xpdf features
but than of security updates in those sources that one would have to
track and apply to the forked codebase. Have you tried talking to
the xpdf author about making a shared library?
