Encapsulated Postscript: Hard Things Done Immediately, Miracles Take A Little Longer, But Easy Stuff Takes Forever

The Enemy Combatant SmartGo boasts of Encapsulated Postscript so I added that too.

I threw in ordinary Postscript as a bonus and everything works very well. EPS support took half a day to accomplish. Not because of the complexity involved but because it took me several hours to figure out how to invoke a specific command line option from within Moyo Go. I do that all the time already, but this time it did not want to work. The solution was mundane but somehow I needed about a hundred trials-and errors to get it working.
