First of all thanks for the patch and I'm sorry that I didn't have the time to

What about a dbus interface? Apparently there is a Glib binding for dbus. The
editor could send the messages to zathura via dbus-send.

Another possibility would be an XML-RPC interface but I didn't check if there
are any good and easy-to-use libraries for that.

Kind regards
