Currently there are two modules included with this module "Views Append" and "Views view field", neither of which are dependencies of Views PDF. What is the purpose of these two modules? Upon inspection they seem to be outdated copies with only minor alterations of the "Views field view" module.
If I'm right about my assumptions, why not use the Views field view module instead and remove these sub-modules from this module?
