Well, one advice I can give, based on brief reading of the code, is to
keep in txutils-convert-alist only the program names, without the
leading directories (e.g., "pdftotext" instead of "/usr/bin/pdftotext"),
and use executable-find to find the program.

This way, you will DTRT by default for more users on more platforms,
and the only users that will need to customize txutils-convert-alist
are those who install the utilities outside of their PATH.
