The next release of altpdftex will have a --outdir flag. This will 
enable you to directly translate DVI files in read-only locations to 
ps/pdf files in writable locations.

	altpdftex --outdir ~ 

will take dvips.dvi from its read-only location and write the pdf file 
in your home directory.

Front ends may use this flag when they are confronted with a request to 
translate a DVI file in a non-writable location. Together with the 
texdoc environment variables, this will make texdoc fully functional.
