   Another question would be: Supports `eepic' pdfTeX? The answer is 
   unfortunately also "No"...

Are you sure the answer is no?
eepic only uses a few tpic drawing specials and it ought to be able to
convert those to pdfliterals, I thought someone must have done that by
now so I asked google, which refered me to the pdftex manual:-)
