Hallo Pete,

Yes, this is a dirty hack, based on epstopdf.sty. Don't know what  
needs to be done in the code. Feel free to modify it, if you know how.

I thought about writing a package that does "on-the-fly" conversion  
based on convert (for tif/png/jpg/... whatever seems worth it) and on  
epspdf (eps/ps<->pdf) that is clever enough to do the appropriate  
conversions depending in whether the typesetting is in pdf/dvi/xetex  
etc. mode.

But this is really something for later this year [my LaTeX-time goes  
into something else, this week ....].

I have to confess that I have difficulties to understand code like in  
epstopdf.sty. Where can one learn about it? Is this TeX or LaTeX?

I think the package also works without any option. The options as I  
have them in the example are only important if automatic updating is  
something you really care about. prepend make sure that the tif-file  
is found first....
