Is Evince going to support Text highlighting in PDF's

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I remember reading somewhere that since goal of evince is to act as a document viewer, it won't support highlighting. Am I right ? are evince dev's going to support highlighting in future. I dont find any thing related to highlighting in the Roadmap. Since Poppler(backend of evince) now supports highlighting(link1 & link2) it is only a question of whether evince should have that feature or not. (HowTos)
