Yeah, I use xpdf for PDFs which probably has an
MIT licence. But it is only because I don't use
a GUI Emacs I don't use Emacs for PDFs as well.
What I do with PDFs is check out the result of
compiled LaTeX. But sure, you would anyhow want
a viewer, Emacs or otherwise, for the
occasional Internet file.

Still, compared to the manpages, info files,
and the on-line help system that Emacs offers
viewing material as PDFs that are available in
those forms should at the very least be
heavy-handed and not offer the same
interactiveness as the in-house solutions.

Just sayin'.
