How to extract only pages with annotations

It's super easy to extract all pages containing annotations from a PDF document.

Maybe you've got a more than 100 pages document, with annotations on just a couple of those pages. Now, you want to extract only those pages containing annotations to a new document.

Let's start with a sample document of 118 pages, which has annotations on just two or three of them.
