Re: EPS Import Re: PDF files sizes

The ability to fully import EPS, PDF, and/or AI files implies that the
internals of FrameMaker be dramatically revised to be able to deal with
any of the graphic objects that may appear via the PostScript and PDF
imaging models. At a minimum, FrameMaker would need to be equipped with
a full PostScript 3 and PDF interpreter/distiller for import. File formats
would need major changes, etc. Such changes are not in the current cards.
