I still have doubts that `C-c C-e' is necessary.  Isn't it possible
to put .ps files in ps-mode, and also put it in `doc-view-minor-mode'?
It would be like `image-minor-mode'.

Also rebinding `C-x k' to a different command is not a good thing.
When the user has a habit to type `C-x k RET' to kill the current buffer,
then if a pdf file was visited from the dired buffer, typing `C-x k RET'
in doc-view-mode will visit it again (rebound `C-x k' will kill the buffer
without confirmation, and RET will revisit from the dired buffer :-)

I suggest you to bind `q' to `doc-view-kill-proc-and-buffer' and don't
rebind `C-x k'.

Also I noticed that often the message
"DocView: finished conversion from PDF/PS to PNG!"
overwrites the message
"Type C-c C-c to toggle between image and text display."
in the minibuffer, so the user may miss this information.
