    I like this approach - a minimal change, and no visible change for the
    users. The "safer" button still has meaning...
The "safer" button/resource/commandline has the same user-visible
semantics as always: do a safe inspection of the file.

It is funny: pdf2dsc.ps is updated to work with GPL gs 8.15 (it
correctly uses the new DELAYSAFER option). But the tools that call
pdf2dsc should do not aware such option when processing the
_generated_ dsc file.

gv now do this, and this is great! :P
