I don't mind to have transparency and gradients in the PostScript
output; this should work with PostScript 3 printers and with a (not too
old) Ghostscript. However, I still would like to create optionally
PostScript-2.0-compatible files. (Here, we are required to send *.ps
files to a PS Level 2 poster printer, they won't accept any other format.)
