The problem is that PS recreated from PDF can never be as good as the
original PS from which the PDF was made. I'm not saying that PDF should
be banned, making a file format illegal would be just as much against
Cosmic Law as making a weed illegal. What infuriates me is that people
have PS and they ASSUME that I want PDF instead, and they convert their
PS to PDF and send me the PDF and not PS. I want the original PS!
