poppler-cpp may have table of contents items, however, I couldn't find 
them... opaque documentation and no example code.  That's what I miss 
from the microsoft world (excellent docs and code all over the 
internet).  And don't get me started about the coding practices of gnome 
and Lennart Poettering.

Their style is in sharp contrast to your own and to Linus Torvald's.
