On the other hand I tried also to open the intermediary .ps file,  
created by TeXShop in the process .tex -> .dvi -> .ps -> .pdf,  
directly in the Finder. This uses Apple's built-in distiller /usr/bin/ 
pstopdf, and yields the same result as originally before modifying  
ps2pdfwr: automatic rotation of the page, becoming landscape.

Thus it seems automatic rotation is more or less established as a  
standard, and by changing it in the scripts ps2pdf (of GS) and  
epstopdf (of TeX) we might break what a user coming from a non-TeX  
background would expect to be the default: automatic rotation. It  
might then make sense to keep automatic rotation as the default for  
both ps2pdf and epstopdf, but provide easy switches for the user to  
modify this default on a per-file basis or in a pref file.
