Sorry but I forgot to state an important condition, that is,
not only it is called from another applications but also
it is difficult to use alternatives or diversion.

For example in case of xdvi/xdvi-ja, they already use alternatives
for xaw-wrappers because they do not run under nextaw, so it might
be very difficult to use alternatives (or diversion) once again.

# And with my experience simple alternatives often messed up 
# my system

My main point is not to use non standard place but to use
standard name for basic commands so if you have an concrete idea 
please let me know.
