Ok, the problems I [mentioned above|#comment-16469705] are now fixed :)

> Create ContentStream for XObject forms and tiling patterns
> ----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: PDFBOX-4068
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4068
>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: PDModel
>            Reporter: Tilman Hausherr
>            Priority: Major
> We have a {{PDAppearanceContentStream}} for appearances but nothing for XObject forms
and tiling patterns.
> What we need should extend {{PDAbstractContentStream}} and should have a constructor
> {code:java}
> public PDFormContentStream(PDFormXObject form) throws IOException
> {code}
> Alternatively, why not replace {{PDAppearanceContentStream}} ? Its parameter {{PDAppearanceStream}}
is extended from {{PDFormXObject}} so we could just use the base class.
> We need this both for 2.0 and 3.* - we have users who have a really hard time fiddling
with low level operators instead of using the methods.
> In 2.0 we could replace the parameter of {{PDPageContentStream}} that is currently {{PDAppearanceStream}}.
This would be a non breaking change.
