Well, ost-text loads pstricks anyway,

As a programming language, PDF is static in contrast to
which is dynamic.  Especially, you cannot redefine
operators, and in order to implement something like
the placement -- locations and angles -- of glyphs must be
either by
 - TeX macros;
 - PS->PDF distiller;
 - DVI driver.
For the first option, you may consult with the Tikz/PGF
For the second, I don't have skill to write PS code to
load disk
fonts to PS interpreters in a portable way.  So feel free
implement it yourself.
For the third, I don't have time right now, so either wait
(possibly forever), or implement it yourself.
