Those numbers do not match what Chema has been getting from his PCL
driver.  It matches the lame case, but not any case with the smallest
ammount of optimization.

Anyways, that is not the point.  We have a Postscript driver, want to
use that instead of an Epson, click on "driver" and select
"Postscript", then click "Print".

Am I missing something?

Really irrelevant.  According to Chema's data it would be around a 6
meg file, so 60 megs on the queue.    I though you were into high-end
servers :-)
