	I'm willing to bet there are some significant shortcomings to the 
following, but one could easily print a PDF to a PostScript file from 
within Preview.  Select "Output Options" from the drop down menu, check 
on "Save as File" and select "PostScript" instead of PDF.  I have no 
idea if the fonts and other considerations mentioned in Maarten's 
helpful message are affected, but for something "quick and dirty" at 
least, it seems hard to beat.
