yes, but this is only a solution when you want to start
the document a second time.

now the values are also saved step by step in the
file PSTdata. But they cannot be read back to TeX in the
same run. The file is written by running ghostscript,
but then pdfTeX has already finished its work.

could be done only with a script which runs your
TeX document, then runs ghostscript, grepping the
file for the last entry and restartr the TeX document
with these new values.

However, if Dominique can provide a TeX solution, it
makes more sense.
