What's pstricks used for? How does it work? If it is a question of 
including "standalone" PostScript/EPS figures, it might be possible to 
use the Apple PS->PDF filter behind the scenes to turn them into 
something xetex can use. But if it's a question of PS fragments that 
interact with the PS being generated by dvips, then that can't work.
