I know I am not on the right list but it might be important. When
incorporating the code for black overprint into zwpagelayout I
probably spotted a bug in (x)dvipdfm(x). I have even found an article
with an example how to put code to PDF via \special in dvipdfm but the
example does not work. It seems to me that it somtimes worked but
later it was somehow damaged and nobody noticed because people do not
need such specialties. Should I prepare test files so that it can be
fixed in binaries for TL2011?

The curren version of zwpagelayout does not contain the code for
switching black generatin for (x)dvipdfm(x) because it reports weird
errors but I can reintroduce it whenever the driver accepts it.
