Derek is aware of SyncTeX, he does not plan to include direct SyncTeX  
support into xpdf,
but he plans to add some facilities to support synchronization with  
the help of the synctex command line tool.
Some of them were already implemented in the forthcoming 3.03, others  
are on his to do list.
I don't know how much work is required to implement them.
Anyway, the synctex command line tool actually available in TL2008  
needs to be updated in order to have an acceptable synchronization.
When I have some time...
