I also like the proposal for an enhancement of the PDF reader/viewer. 
Especially for a GSoC project it is preferable to have clear (viewable) 
results in the end.
 From a PDFBOX developer point of view it would also be nice to add some 
PDF debugging features to the viewer like providing object ids, font 
information etc. when hovering over text/image.

Kind regards,
