Sadly, it is not.

On-and-off, I spent two weeks with pdfbox, reading what documentation
exists on the website, skimming through source files and
try-miss-repeat programming using pdfbox. I am willing to write
tutorials/documentation on what little I learned along the way, but
don't know how the library really works in the background or why the
things I wrote really work. The documentation on the website (which I
did read, thoroughly) is inadequate and very much incomplete.

I realize that you do not have time for to write answers to all
beginners' questions. I also realize that you are trying to be
helpful. Thank you for that.

Still, I am not any closer to determining line positions.
