Have I just been lucky? In the Applekeys package I put both .eps  
and .pdf versions of some of the apple keys. I require the graphicx  
package to load but never force it into dvips versus pdftex mode nor  
do I have a \DeclareGraphicsExtension command. The correct extension  
is automatically chosen.

The only thing I'd use the \ifpdf for is if I was only given .eps  
files and I would have to include the epstopdf package in pdflatex  
but not in latex+dvips+distiller.

Good Luck,
