I think your dev2bitmap() is a really neat idea!
Thank you
Further, I didn't know that (newer flavors of) gs  allows for so many 
different output formats
[for the unaware (as I was till now):
     gs --help
		 (1997 Aladdin Ghostscript 5.1)
 gives 69 devices (not all useful for dev2bitmap), 
 such as jpeg, tiff, png, pbm, pgm, pcx,...
I think something like it should make it into the distribution
(shall I quickly write docu for it, saying it is somewhat experimental,
 even for 0.65.1 ?)
