It would be awesome if Poppler had a backend that created an SVG file from a PDF document. Looking at the Cairo backend, I think this could be done relatively easily, and could prove very useful, as it would allow easy editing of PDF files.
There is a version of SVG that handles multiple pages, called SVGPrint. Inkscape doesn't handle SVGPrint yet, but it is planned.
Currently there are a couple of ways of getting from PDF to SVG, but it takes 2-3 tools and is quite a convoluted process.
