Possibly, or more exactly for these cfg it could have been my idea, it's
all so long ago:-)

Thanks for reminding me: I _have_ changed dvips, also I changed trig to use
"0" and "1" rather than the unexpandable "\z@` and "\@ne" so that
doesn't have to patch it (nor pdftex.def but I didn't change that)
Note also that the big conditional block of code for eps to pdf conversion
I put in
luatex.def (which seems the more natural place) if it was in pdftex.def
in a pdftex-conditional block in graphics.cfg then graphics.cfg would look
a lot simpler
(the same as color.cfg, essentially) but I left that for now.
The updated dvips.def and trig.sty are in the latex svn and we are
release for 1st feb (latex2e 2016/01/01) so these cfg need to wait until
sorry about that.
change log in graphics svn says:
2016-01-03 David Carlisle <latex-bugs at latex-project.org>
* graphics.dtx, color.dtx: add luatex option. (luatex.def to be
* trig.dtx: make pre-calculated trig values expand to digits
rather than use \chardef
2015-12-30 David Carlisle <latex-bugs at latex-project.org>
* drivers.dtx: dvips can deal natively with compressed eps
(was in texlive's graphics.cfg)
