Render a PDF as text
PdfRenderer plugin renders an application/pdf attachment as text using pdftotext. Probably much more/better could be done here, but i'm calling it quits for now.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
Download the zipped source from here.
pdftotext must be installed. See http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html for a Window port.
Enabled the plugin and browse to a pdf attachment
