Up to now I had the naive assuption that GhostScript works with all printers.
PostScript is getting more and more widespread and programs such as dvips are
by now a crucial part of the TeX system.
I don't want to convince anyone that PostScript is better or generally
All I ask is that the syntax used for arrows be general enough to be extended
(a) arrows of arbitrary angles
(b) curved angles [3rd degree Bezier curves]
so that once the metafont-based package is out, one can easily make a
PostScript-based package which would understand the commands of the previous ones
and eventually allow people to be more flexible with their diagrams.
