 >  though not why they decided to use std::make_unique

 What's to be explained here? I most definitely want that function too when
 I use unique pointers in C++.

 > I sure know that I hate having to rebuild dependents just because some
 utility library broke ABI - again.

 As explained above, poppler is regularly breaking API, not just ABI. ABI
 changes are frequent enough everywhere, for plenty of other ports.
