yes, but most eps files don't seem to have a show page and thus
ghostscript doesn't seem to render anything. The EPSPlugin seems to pass
the data to ghostscript, but a client reports errors with .eps. When I
do the gs command handomatically I get no file. If I add in a showpage
just before the final restore I at least get the converted image/ppm
etc.
