I think it's silly to split packages for no good reason. And doing it to
avoid circular deps is only a good reason in extreme cases where
they can't be worked around in any other way. Standard Gentoo
practice is one ebuild per upstream package and useflags to toggle
optional functionality. I don't see any reason to deviate from that
practice in the case of poppler.
