I think it sounds good. But anyway, eps inclusion in dvipdfm(x)
"through Ghostscript" has a limitation at present that
"negative values for BoundingBox are not treated correctly".
In such a case, I first change eps to pdf by epstopdf.
eps by MetaPost with negative values for BoundingBox
is correctly included by dvipdfmx.

Best regards,
