I have a dvipdf from Ghostscript, which uses dvips and pipes the 
PostScript output to Ghostscript gs with option -sDEVICE=pdfwrite to 
write a PDF file. But isn't the quality of converting the TeX input to 
DVI, DVI to PostScript and then PostScript to PDF, worse than using just 
pdftex to make PDF directly from the TeX input?
