Embolden font when rendering PDF

On E-ink devices, PDF is rendered a little light, the readability will improve if it can be rendered a little darker. I found a way to do that, with the "FT_Outline_Embolden", the patch for poppler and the result of pdftoppm is attached.

Hope useful for E-ink PDF viewer or PDF to image converter.
