Yes, this is what I expected. I am not aware of any real-world
graphics application which actually puts executable postscript
subroutines into its pictures - which is good.
ReportLab could easily add a 'raw' graphics format which is just
PDF operators, and we could have an eps_to_rawpdf.py to make
it easier for people to bring in artwork, as long as they knew
about the font and colour space implications. This is a separate
project to the visual editor but still a big win.

Aha. Sorry, I'm about 6 years out of date there ;-)
