Don't panic yet. pdftex emits DVI as well as PDF, no problem. If you remake
all the symlinks to point to "pdfetex" instead of "tex", and remake
I think you'll find no change at all.
It is a serious suggestion. The only arguments against it are
* the "must keep Knuth's legacy intact" attitude.
* any ways in which pdfeTeX does NOT give identical results
if the second of these applies, clearly thats an end to the suggestion
