I don't know what the computing power of a Postscript printer is (about the
level of a i386 maybe?), but if we start this way, why don't we put XT's
and AT's to work? I know RC5 depends heavily on 32 bits instructions, but
it is easier (I think) to get the clients working on those machines, and
there are quite a few still around (at least I have some of them I can dust
off, even a 8088 running good old CP/M.... ;-). Or is this silly? Any
