Even if one can see only the plain text in a buffer, the buffer
content is still associated wth the original pdf (or dvi) file.

So as the code matures, I can well imagine that it will be useful if
at least some doc-view functionality can be made available in a tty.
For example, when you add print commands that allow one to print
selected pages (or convert these pages to some other format), that
would be a neat feature even if one can work only with a plain text
buffer to "view" a pdf file.
