That would load doc-view unconditionally when a user opens a pdf/ps/dvi
file.  That's ok with me, but others might think different.

But someone should decide: Is loading doc-view when opening ps/pdf/dvi
files ok?

But then a user would need to open a document and enable d-v-m manually
in order to have it (or its minor mode) activated automatically when
opening another doc.

IMO a setup function would be better then.
