arXiv does something strange. Sometimes submission fails because they
believe that some packages collide; sometimes adding dvi file fixes
this problem (why? I don't know). It looks like a Russian roulette. I
suspect that some (all?) Warnings which do not stop tex actually are
reasons for them to reject.

Because of this I am afraid that it does not fit in any existing lists
