The re-encoding *is* built into dvips.  OzTeX's QuickDraw dvi driver can't
re-encode; dvips can.  You rely on dvips to do the re-encoding.  Of course
it needs the instructions to do it, but it does do it.  The other way of
doing it would be to use the vf mechanism to re-map 8r->8a (or whatever),
but that means you miss out glyphs that are un-numbered in the native

I think we've been talking at cross-purposes here.
