I would prefer that gv have the option to set the way it views pages. I customize the bounding box in PS files, which prevents Evince and Okular from displaying them correctly in many cases even though the box encompasses the entire graphic.

The attached test file when viewed in gv uses the bounding box as the page size. It would look better if gv used the page size specified by the DocumentMedia/PageMedia DSC comments. Using the bounding box as the page size doesn't make sense unless the file is an EPS file or does not contain any DocumentMedia/PageMedia DSC comments.

Other viewers like Evince and Okular display this document correctly using the page size.
