Hi, I'm afraid we don't have any written docs like that. If I had to do 
another activity that used the evince python bindings, I would first 
read Read's code and then see if the existing bindings in evince.def are 
enough. You can find some apidocs about that in the evince C sources. If 
you need to add bindings, see how evince.defs is done and send patches.

Also, note that we are shipping a forked package of evince containing a 
few patches to evince itself, some work to put the evince code in a 
shared lib, plus the python bindings themselves. All this should be 
upstreamable, but nobody has found the time yet. If someone wanted to do 
such contribution, would be very welcome.
