This is certainly quite a big pull for us to move to ESP Ghostscript,
IMHO.

There is also a community push to re-base ESP Ghostscript on GNU
Ghostscript 8.15.

Perhaps the best thing would be to switch to ESP Ghostscript first
(and iron out any problems that we come across) -- and then help with
the upgrade to 8.15.

Opinions?
