But the difference is that the images are just there and can be
displayed immediately whereas pdfs and such have to be converted first.
I don't think it would be good to unconditionally start a conversion run
if a document is attached with disposition type `inline'.  And if the
user has to type a key first to start the conversion and inline the
images I cannot see a big benefit.

I think it wouldn't be hard to add a function to doc-view that inserts
the images into the current buffer, but we'd loose (or have to
re-implement) all those nice features like searching or image-scrolling.
