Allow to select Splash or Arthur render backends
Review Request #130235 - Created Aug. 24, 2017 and updated
This patch adds a new configuration option to the pdf backend options: the user can select between the poppler Splash or Arthur backends. Of course Splash is the default, but it's nice to have the choice -- I use it to debug Arthur.
I need some help, though (still Qt newbie). With the current patch, backend changes do not go into effect until the document is reloaded. How do I make it go into effect when 'Ok' is clicked? I suppose there's some signal that gets emitted, but what's its name?
Also, It'd be good to add a 'here be dragons' tooltip to the Arthur choice. Is that possible?

Yeah, that's not happening, also needed for https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=384070
Honestly, i don't like to have this option even if you add a million of warnings, people will select it and they'll either file a bug or shit on the internet about how crap Okular is.
I don't understand why an #ifdef protecting the option is not good for you?
