Hi Jon,

That's a mistake. My guess is, the term is a survivor from pre-sphinx days
when the python documentation and we had ps and pdf as output.
At the moment, only pdf output is published and will remove the wording on
ps from docs.

You can get a postscript output by downloading python source.

$cd Docs
$make latex
$cd build/latex
$make all-ps  # Seems to crash

Or, you could do:

$pdf2ps on the pdf files.
