I must reprimand myself.

It is quite possible that a user wanting to use dvi files
will have made the suitable configuration of Mac OS X
for opening .dvi files either "double-clicking" in the Finder,
or with "open" in Terminal.

However, I don't know offhand anyway to do this, and specify to
use xdvi, apart from creating an AppleScript or similar as a tiny
Mac application, which does open -a XQuartz and then xdvi, and
then assign it as the default application for file extension 

(actually this is exactly what I had years ago, but I had forgotten)

Well, I don't know anymore if I am right to make this noise about
the current mapping of "output-dvi" to "open" on Mac OS X...
