> Just one remark: on the Mac (and I think that applies to Linux too), creating a new script is not the logical way to go for TeX Live. Instead, there's the simpdftex script (formerly called altpdftex) which is already provided to do just that: emulate pdftex through dvips and ps2pdf (or any distiller of your choice), or even dvipdfm(x). The only think you have to do is create the appropriate engines.

Thanks for pointing this out (again; I realized that you have mentioned
this a few times already, but I always forgot about it - sorry). I added
it to the page.
