Maybe I did not understand what the conversion EPS -> PDF does! From 
Apple's grab I thought this step would involve converting vectors to 
bitmaps. This seems to be a false assumption, since it's probably grab 
that cannot vectorize the pixel screen.

When the vector based contents is saved in the PDF output, then I have 
to withdraw my last posting! Bitmaps with bad resolution in EPS won't 
get better, and won't get worse either. But when vectors stay vectors 
then the conversion of EPS to PDF is worth to go!
