I have been involved in a book for which I have been using XeLaTeX. I  
do most of my illustrations in pstricks and I would not care to give  
it up.
I tried pdftricks, and it was working, but made typesetting a lot  
slower, since it was redoing all the illustrations every time.

My current solution, which has been working well, is to do the  
illustrations separately, using latex+dvips+ps2pdf, and use  
\includegraphics to put them in the main document.
