No problem!  I didn't mention it because I felt "left out" or something, 
but in case someone was interested in working on it.

Hmm, if GSview operates directly on the PostScript source, I can imagine 
that it has some trouble with links, since it doesn't have the tables of 
that would be in a PDF.

Normally I'm using Distiller, but I just tried ps2pdf (5.10), resulting in 
all link rectangles rendered as filled black rectangles covering the text 
:-(  Either ps2pdf or I are must be buggy...

Anyway, it is possible to escape the sandbox, if it's necessary.  But if 
you really want to code something, how about the bookmarks (you know, 
counting the subordinate elements) :-)
