    Me too, but for ps-files this isn't what we want, because .setsafe is
    never called. For pdf files it's perfectly fine to use DELAYSAFER since
    .setsafe is called.


Consider this: we always call the gs interpreter with:


(the arguments passed to gv are controlled by resources on GV, by the way)

    - old gs's will happily ignore DELAYSAFER setting the safe state.
    - With new gs the DELAYSAFER takes precedence over SAFER (tested).

and regarding PS files, gv can omit the -DDELAYSAFER option when not
reading a PDF.

So i think the solution is complete.

What do you think?
