I don't mind going to a development snapshot of Poppler. Here's
something to think about WRT evince-0.5. From the NEWS file:
* Correctly interoperate with DBUS 0.60
So, if we decide to use dbus-0.60 (not that we necessarily will), it
looks like we'd want to use evince-0.5.1+ and, hence, poppler-0.5.x.

Here's from the ChangeLog of Poppler, applying to the 0.5 series:
2006-02-16 Albert Astals Cid <aacid at kde.org>
* glib/Makefile.am: Update soname as we are not really compatible
anymore with previous releases that had soname 0.0.0
So, it looks like there would be issues across the poppler-0.4/0.5
divide. I don't really use KDE, so I don't know the requirements
Sorry for not offering solutions. On my own box, you can bet I'll go
to the bleeding edge, but I don't know what's best for the book.
