Making xpdf_to_text, which uses xpdf-tools' pdftotext, the pdf to txt conversion tool for linux and mac as well. Recently used it for windows which had no prior PDF to txt conversion tool and used to output HTML. Since the introduction into GS of xpdf-tools, we can support newer pdf versions so using its pdftotxt as default tool to do PDF to txt conversions seems to be the way forward.
