There are limits on the pstricks.

Recent pdflatex versions will auto-convert eps->pdf (file.eps->file-eps-converted-to.pdf) and use the converted pdf. It also only re-does the conversion if file.eps changes.

There is (very) limited support of Unicode (UTF-8) in recent latex versions that works very nicely for Western European languages. That's turned on by default.

Good Luck,
