ideally emacs would have a pdf mode with a set of sub-modes.

one would give a gui view and anable adding/removung/editing
text on each page

another would be a text-only mode, which would work in all types of
terminals, and also would facilitate editing as above; in this mode
each pdf object would be treated similarly to how config mode treats
each option

and the third would look like fundamental mode, but like the first two
would adjust the offsets whever any edits are made

the latter two modes would need to support switching an object or
astream between compressed and uncopressed, including the various
possibilities for compression.

with those three capabilities emacs would be an ideal option for
editing any pdf.  perhaps even the.
