Ditto for me. The revolting.png is revolting, but not the
revolting.eps. (Well, the y-axis labels are a bit iffy...) 

As Brian (did he say it?), I don't really see the need for support of
resolution-dependent formats (.tiff, .jpg, .gif, etc. -- BTW, I
thought that GIF had fallen from grace due to recent Unisys behavior?)
when GS and helper tools like "convert" are doing the conversions so
nicely already. The Windows Metafile format might be nice to have, but
it would be a pain to figure out how to do those without actually
running Windows.
