Cool. The PCL handling is quite new, and happened partly because *I* recently
wrote to the two different HylaFAX developer groups and asked for it. (I wrote
the SunOS port of HylaFAX, a long, long time ago!) There is also a commercial
ps2pdf program for both SCO OpenServer and Linux, if you are not happy with
pcl6. I'll look at my typerules and compare it with yours on Tuesday.

OK, *why* pursue yet another compression algorithm? Given the ubiquity and
flexibility of gzip, is yet another one necessary? What's the rough difference
in cmpression ratios?

lzma -2 compresses 11% better than bzip -9, lzma -5 even 18%
And at a pretty impressive price:
