I can't see how Livecode can replace the XPDF external with the PDF 
Widget UNTIL the PDF Widget provided all the functions the External does 
(and it does not). Well, of course they could drop the external even if 
it does a bunch of thinsg people depend on that the Widget does not, but 
it would just be bad of them to do so!
