Metadata Extractor for PDF Forms broken

I think that PDFBox has a bug that prevents reading PDF Forms to populate metadata.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-1100

As a result I need to develop a way to read the values from the fields in a PDF Form.
It appears the Acrobat is capable of running JavaScript http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/sdk/AcroJSGuide.pdf so it got me thinking that perhaps Alfresco Webscripts could read the PDF Forms.

Has anyone taken this approach? Is it feasible?
Is there another way to read the data from PDF Forms to populate the metadata in Alfresco?
