There actually is one situation that this method is appealing: when
you have a very complicated figure and that your computer is not that

I encountered this situation myself not too long ago. I have a figure
generated by Mathematica. The size of the EPS was 12 MB. Even though I
managed to have it shrunk to ~3MB, it was still very difficult to
manage for my poor PowerBook. Each time it spent a long long time to
draw the results on my screen when processed. This new method however
has one less step and indeed saved me some time (whether my time was
meaningful or not is out of the question. :P )
