+1 from me ...
I think its always better to have only ONE good working function than
several approaches that do not work well at all ..
if gdal works well in reading and writing(!!!) dxf i would drop dxf2shp
in favor of gdal ...
BUT that can happen only at that time when every distribution or ships
gdal in a reasonable version (1.7 in this case) which IMHO is not at
this time .. so please postpone that as long as (for my purposes debian)
does not have gdal 1.7 in the main distribution (current stable ships

kind regards
