      Description

      It seems difficult to extract text coordinates extending PDFTextStripper if I want the coordinates of the extracted text to be the lower left, relative to the origin located in the lower left point of the page.
      Obviously, the rotation of the page should be considered.

      I could probably do it by myself if TextPosition's "rotation" field had a getter.

      Any suggestion?
