That would be fantastic. I may still have all the older poppler sources
(somewhere). I we can just revert the changes in the current code, that would be
the best case, but if not, I have the last freedesktop sources before the
commits. I'll hunt them down if needed, but I guess you GIT masters could just
tell freedesktop to spit the code out as it existed on 1/15/2011.

For my education -- "How do you do that?" Say I wanted to clone the repository
as it existed prior to the 1/16/2011 changes, what would the git command look like?
