But they are the ones who use them all the time. It's completely
Pavlovian, I guess. :)

Postscript is good for using it later. But it is not the best format
to have it or create it in - the xcf files for GIMP are just fine
especially since they contain more information than the postscript
files. Stuff can always be converted into postscript, the other way
round is more difficult.
