doc-view with mupdf-tools

Might it be possible to use pdfdraw from mupdf-tools in doc-view? Would a whole 
new mode need to be created or is it possible to customize doc-view to use 

Rendering PDFs to PNG is more accurate and clear with mupdf. Mupdf-tools has 
options for generating PNG or text files. The text extracted with "pdfdraw -t" 
are well formatted and in UTF-8. Could it be that one reason mupdf doesn't 
replace ghostscript/poppler in doc-view is that it can't handle PS files?

My failed attempts at customizing the doc-view group to use mupdf have included:

"Doc View Ghostscript Program" set to "pdfdraw"
"Doc View Ghostscript Options" set to "-o %d.png"
"Doc View Pdftotext Program" set to "pdfdraw -t"
