dvipdf is a tiny wrapper that calls dvips | gs.  That's fine, but the
user should have the option of specifying other dvi-to-pdf translators.
In particular, dvipdfmx is the native translator currently being
maintained, and is a superset of dvi2pdf and dvipdfm, among others.

In the patch, it looked like the command names and options were
hardwired.  Can you change things so that they can be overridden?

They are hardwired because it's a preliminary state :)  I was
hoping for feedback such as yours.  I also know dvipdf and dvi2pdf
and both do not have the same interface (one is input -o output,
the other input output).

What is your recommendation?  Should I use these tools?  Should I
make direct calls to dvips and them ps2pdf or even gs directly?

I don't know dvipdfmx.  I can try a --help to see if the
interface is "input output" or "input -o output".  What's
the --help for dvipdfmx?

Thanks in advance!
