Part of the issue he presented yesterday was that he wanted to use 
\includegraphics to include a page from a multi-page PDF, e.g.,


This works fine with pdflatex but fails with regular latex since "file" 
is a PDF (though the error message is generated by keyval and complains 
about "page" being an undefined key).

Is pst-pdf supposed to work around this situation automatically? AFAICT 
it isn't supposed to, so I advised Jan to wrap his \includegraphics 
statement in \ifpdf ... \fi.
