I recall a number of people wanting to use the PostScript to drive
real PostScript printers directly.  That was some time ago; perhaps
Ghostscript can handle PDF sufficiently now.

If there's no longer any interest in having the PostScript available,
I'll be glad to drop that.  I guess I really should come up with a
script that pulls the relevant stats from the site logs.
