As I understand it EPS is a subset of PostScript.  Pure PostScript can
do anything, such as create new pages, be a web server, etc.
Encapsulated PostScript is designed for embedding in other documents, so
it more like SVG in that respect: lots of the functionality isn't
supported, EPS files have more explicit bounding boxes, etc.
