      Description

      As discussed on dev@ - If you use the Tika App with the default config and the -z extract option, it will extract embedded resources, except PDF inline images. This is unexpected for new users, who won't know that they'd need to pass in a custom config with the extractInlineImages PDF parser option set

      If the user passes in an explicit config to the app, we should respect that. However, if they don't pass one in and take the default, the -z option should (but only that one) enable whatever options are needed to make extraction work properly + fully (currently just extractInlineImages)

      If possible/easy, the -z option should print out some info to let affected users know that the default config was tweaked to give extra embedded resources
