Hi Rainer,

Thanks for your feedback.  Your thoughts are quite helpful and give me
some ideas and motivation.

Yes, I've been working on this.  The difficulty I currently face is
getting the correct regex.  Because all of the data below the header is
a single string, my approach is to pull the string after the file
heading and then compare the okular string with the org-mode string.
Unfortunately, I've not yet figured out the correct regular expression.

This is an interesting question.  At the moment, I'm not sure that this
is possible.  Since okular doesn't run as a daemon, there's no way (that
I know of) to communicate with a given instance, but I agree it would be
nice.  I'll look into how okular manages opening files within an
instance and see if I can figure out a way.

Sweet!  I'm glad you find it useful.

Now that's bold.  I've been looking at this
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-protocol.php wondering if
there's a way to get more interaction.  By looking at, I mean I just
noticed it last week, I don't know how possible it is, but you're right,
such a thing would be a great interface.  Rule nothing out!
