is a scheme extension embedding postscript operators.  Note:

    We'd like to have a back-end that renders directly to the screen.
    This could be done by linking FPS's Scheme with the free Ghostscript
    C library of PostScript primitives to render to X. Then we'd have a
    high-level, device-independent graphics system for doing interactive
    screen graphics.

A postscript-driven rendering engine seems an elegant way to unify
axiom's interactive graphics with lisp, texmacs, and
