I think that would be adequate (didn't realize that not only the filename
but also the classname is changed -- many thanks for that xpdf glib
While you are at it, you might as well try to add 'goo/' to the #include's
for xpdf where appropriate

would be really useful, otherwise syncing TL with the respective dev trees
will be a nightmare. Early in the discussion of the possibility to use
poppler instead of xpdf I said that this will necessarily be a global choice
and can't be different for pdftex/luatex/xetex. As far as I remember there
were positive reactions to this from Thanh, Taco, and Jonathan.
