I've updated to ROADMAP to include a metadata API for 1.8.


This should be a non backend specific API as there are other backends
that can also store metadata. The PDF metadata also supports UTF-16
strings so we should support that. We also don't want applications to
have to understand the PDF date format to set the date in the metadata.
