Yes, it is. Not as good as a fully-fledged pdf reader, but quite
interesting when you add to its basic viewer capabilities the features
provided by Emacs integration.

FWIW, the author already fixed the problem.

Including it on Emacs would be a good thing since it is an hybrid
Elisp+C extension and building the C part is not trivial on certain
environments (including some GNU/Linux distros that do not install a C
compiler by default, not to mention libpoppler).

OTOH anything that is included into the Emacs core is hampered by the
glacial pace of the Emacs release rate.
