Well, it could display well on the screen and on the printer and still
be a raster image.  It would just need to be a 150-300 dpi image. :)
But if you scaled the image, it would still look pixely.  I'm surprised
that any converter to ps or pdf would rasterize all the vectors.  Seems
like that defeats the purpose of the format...
