Is raw postscript (.ps) the only thing tk can write from canvas?
I would like to be able to import into OpenOffice document (drawing 
object) and it can import encapsulated postscript (.eps) and about 20 
other things but not, apparently, .ps.

Help on method postscript:
postscript(self, *args, **kw) method of turtle.ScrolledCanvas instance

is spectacularly useless. I did not see anything similar in the list of 
about 100 attributes. The image_type of the canvas is 'photo bitmap' but 
I see no method to write that.
