Because Postscript is a procedural language, there's inevitably going
to be something you can do with it that you cannot do as efficiently
(or at all) with a declarative language. Whatever that something is,
I doubt it's worth the complexity tradeoff, but all the same, don't be
surprised when someone pulls it out.
