Can you get AR to behave the way xdvi does, i.e. reload the new output
file automatically when it receives focus, or like xpdf, on hitting 'r'
or turning a page?  That would be useful!

I think that's because a lot of people are still using latex.  Most of
our dept uses latex rather than pdflatex.  And some, like those in
Linguistics, make heavy use of pstricks.  pdftricks is a bit flaky.

Can you give a bit more detail?
