It is actually probably less work than modding xpdf. mupdf is a nice idea.

I will check a bit the code. apt-get source mupdf,
and a man tells us:

I wonder if h,j,k,l could no be used to move to various page, and
actally we could use s,d,w,x for scrolling...

" L, R Rotate page left (clockwise) or right (counter-clockwise).

       h, j, k, l
              Scroll page left, down, up, or right.

       +, - Zoom in or out.

       w Shrinkwrap window to fit the page.

       r Reload file."
