Reinhard, please do me a favour and don't tell me that it is
easy to implement the missing features. There are _many_ PostScript
interpreters with Level 1 support in the net like escrito.
But show me one free interpreter which supports Level 2, except

And it makes no sense to tell me that _some_ of the level 2
operators are quite simple! PSTricks needs nearly all
and escrito can not handle a lot of the PSTricks code, for
example the font stuff.
