But some of us are not print shops, and have Postscript printers, which
are better fed with Postscript, and do not directly accept PDF.
PDF to Postscript converters are not 100% dependable, even if they do
the job most of the time. Given `.pdf' and `.ps', for one, I would
almost always pick the `.ps' file, to avoid possible fights and trouble.
