Contents of PDF Annotations (Pop-up notes) not output by pdftotext

PDF can contain annotations (pop-up notes). It would be highly useful if their contents were output by pdftotext to allow them to be indexed by Beagle.
I am the author of gscan2pdf (http://gscan2pdf.sourceforge.net/), an application to make it easy to scan to a PDF. Having added OCR functionality, the most obvious way of using the OCR output in the PDF is in an annotation - thereby having the original scan, and idealy searchable text.
