And here is an implementation of the additional blend modes for PDF.


I have not done much testing of this. However it is sufficient to run 
the extended-blend test and view the PDF output in acroread or poppler 
with the Splash backend. As the cairo backend of poppler does not 
currently support these blend modes, viewing the 
extended-blend-pdf-*-out.png files will not be interesting.
