OK I understand that, but many people are going to TeXworks 
with an existing background in (La)TeX, especially using eps 
figures and so need dvips...

What are, in detail, the steps to compile, under TeXworks 
files with postscript commands?
There are two, if I am not mistaken (latex-dvips-ps2pdf and 
straight pdflatex adding a package) but TeXworks has to be 
adapted in both cases.
Further, are these solutions equivalent?

I'll also be interested to pdflatex, biblatex, makeindex, 
pdflatex, pdflatex.
How to achieve that?
