Dear TeX Live Team,

we got a bug report that ps4pdf.sty is missing. It is true that it is
listed on CTAN in obsolete, and I am not sure if we every included it in
TeX Live, and I have no idea whether it should be used or should not be
used, so please advise.

I am indifferent on that stuff.

An extremely intricate knot originally used for belaying the
topgallant foresheets of a gaff-rigged China clipper, and now more
commonly observed when trying to get an old kite out of the cupboard
under the stairs.
