I've already tried to edit Ferret PostScript with Adobe Illustrator, and I
was very disapointed. Ferret does not include any character in the graphic
file. Instead, all characters are emulated through graphic primitives.
Editing the PostScript means removing all emulated 'characters' to replace
them by actual ones. This is a real pain.

This comes from the metafile generated by Ferret, and thus cannot be change
by a smarter version of Fprint.
