I know that *currently* Fedora Ghostscript is based on GNU Ghostscript
7.07 -- that's because I just haven't had the time to port all the
patches.  But in principle someone from the Fedora Community could do
that, or it could be made a blocker/target for the next development
cycle, etc.  Whereas with ESP Ghostscript we would be reliant on ESP
to do the work.

The other way of looking at it is that ESP would do the work and we
wouldn't have to. :-)

Just want to figure out which is more appropriate for Fedora Core.
