I was also astonished, but since the old stuff was there, I assumed this
was intentional, and wrote a modern version. I would not object leaving
it out. But then also the completely deprecated part about EPSF macros
should be removed, and only a reference to the documentation of those
packages kept in the dvips documentation.
