That's what I like about CUPS. It can be set up to rip the postscript
on a computer. That way bad postscript will not crash the printer nor
will complex postscript slow down the print queue. 

I used to have postscript level 1 printer that I configured CUPS to
rip the postscript up to level 3 and output it as postscript level
1. It was slow because I was using a PII 266mHz to do the ripping, 
it would have been a lot faster with a faster machine.
