Although the command latex is just a sym-link, its target, pdftex,  
reads and understands the original name by which it has been invoked.  
And then pdfTeX runs as latex and produces: DVI output.

This is a kind behaviour, allowing us to use (some) micro-typography  
in DVI.



Don't just do something, sit there.
