The fonts presumably are still used by Yannis Haralambous in Omega.
Development may proceed glacially and with little involvement of the
public, but it still may be useful to get the info through.  While I
can't guarantee success here, it might be worth a try.

The above code either produces a `save' object and leaves `true' on
the stack, or it leaves `false' on the stack.

I don't think that this sort of information passing should happen on
the PostScript stack between prolog and the page data, but I don't see
a particular mention of stack effects in the DSC standard document.

That would not mean a thing.

Without an appropriate example, it is hard to say anything here.
