I missed the first part of the thread and also don't seem to have
doc-view, as I am on a mac and do not have emacs 23, but this is
fantastic functionality.

Even in X, and whether links are opened from w3m or from ido or from a
link in org-mode, I will normally want pdf to open in emacs as text,
with a command available to run an external viewer.  Preferably the
external viewer can be chosen at the time of following the original
link OR as a separate command after you have already run the emacs

Again, I am out of the loop, but wouldn't the normal way to be to have
a variable that allows something like  'emacs-only, 'external-only,
'when-gui as options?

Apologies for noise if this is irrelevant.

Except for the silent users who need plain text for accessibility reasons!
