Just doing my daily round of the internet I found this at AppleInsider, 
concerning the future features of Tiger:

> PDFKit
>  PDF Kit is a new Cocoa framework in Tiger that will let developers 
> add PDF viewing and navigation to their Mac OS X application with just 
> a few clicks in Interface Builder. The kit will automatically handle 
> the rendering of the PDF content and provide controls for navigation 
> and setting the zoom level.
>  Developers may also choose to go beyond simple PDF viewing, as the 
> PDF Kit PDF Kit includes a suite of developer classes for adding 
> capabilities to perform text searches, manage selections, add 
> annotations, and specify the behavior of some graphical elements.
>  Sources say that starting with the release of Tiger, Apple’s 
> "Preview" application will use the new PDF Kit as the foundation for 
> its PDF support.

It's just a rumour, of course, but who knows? Possibly this will impact 
in due course our PDF viewers of choice.
