Go beat up on Adobe. It's their product, it's their closed/proprietary

I thought that PDF spec are public. I even have one lying somewhere
around. Do you mean that it is incomplete and Adobe is using more
features than it publishes?

If that's the case - and the full spec is in the wild, then take the
problem of incomplete support to those who write PDF readers that lack
the features you need.

I still don't see how it's a reasonable position to state "since none of
the other OSS PDF reader solutions are out there, the openSUSE project
*MUST* continue to include a discontinued proprietary package or throw
resources into solving a problem that applies to a small segment of
users."
