Sounds good to me. It's really just the poppler-qt4-globalparams.patch,
as poppler-win32-font-handling.patch only applies to Windows-specific files.

This is up to Jonathan Kew to decide (I explicitly CC'ed him to this

policy. Not being a Mac developer or user myself, I can only abide by
the judgment of those who must live with the consequences (whatever they
may be).
