Ok, now I had to check it out, and Andreas, it's a really superb
package.  I'm gonna use that now for reading PDF files instead of
doc-view (where I'm the author) and Evince (which I use due to
doc-view's limitations).

But Troy is correct.  The PDF he links makes emacs freeze, although I've
been able to recover by hitting `C-g' repeatedly.  The result was that
the raw PDF data was shown.

Before I had opened that file successfully with doc-view and then did
M-x pdf-view-mode.  That worked.  When doing it that way, it seems some
if not all of PDF Tools minor modes aren't active, so I guess one of
them does something that triggers the freeze.

Andreas, do you plan to propose PDF Tools for inclusion in Emacs?  IMO,
that's really a package anybody's gonna love.  (Oh my god, how well the
syntex stuff/AUCTeX integration works!)

Bye,
Tassilo (who is flashed by that package)
