hi brian: just make sure you test your resulting files with a number of
browsers. I tried the linearizing by gs, and had a lot of users complain that

I am so spoiled now by pdflatex, where everything seems to work almost
flawlessly, that I would have loved to see linearizing as an intrinsic
feature. once gs works solidly, this will be as good, of course.
