    uh :/ in fact I have seen in the code how the interpreter 'gs' is called
    to render the page. And now I think that using this mechanism it will be
    easier for me to write a new viewwer, than modify this one. 

I understand you: the GHOSTVIEW/callbacks mechanism to control the
ghostscript display is somewhat weird: you would need to change the
environment and to run another gs instance to get your pixmaps

    Of course it's only because I'm not the original author, so my
    knowledge about this code is limited very much. But I don't have
    enough time for that, so I'll have to stick with gv, as It's the
    best one I have found out there.

Well, we could schedule two-pages views for gv 3.6.3 (i am trying to
release gv 3.6.2, but there are some troubles with the gnu
machinery). If you want to try to implement this, i can help you.
