preview-latex for getting around GhostScript in the DVI case as much
as possible: Jan-Åke made sure that dvibitmap did the right job by
looking at it, scrapping it and writing dvipng from scratch, and he
and myself wrote wagonloads of Elisp code to integrate it into
preview-latex (which took me an inordinately long time and worked by
Jan-Åke giving up on me and writing something horrible himself which I
subsequently had to help replace by something proper).

OK, I think I got the message. By the way, pdf2png works better than Bumgartner writes - in particular the slightly different ObjC / Cocoa based implementation (which still uses Quartz), but you may be right about bounding boxes etc.!

OK, what about another approach:

Suppose PDF is one of the image types supported by Emacs, would AUCTeX be able to directly use the PDFs generated with pdflatex?

On another note: mouse-1-follows-link is not respected when it comes to showing / hiding the images with mouse-1 instead of mouse-2. I think it should - I don't even have a mouse-2 (physically) on my laptop, nor am I used to it for anything else but context menus...
