Recently, in support of a transcription effort at Wikisource I asked and obtained a set of files being the figures for the UK Traffic Signs Manual. They are supplied as EPS.
The Inkscape (0.91) import uses Ghostscript to render(seemingly to an intermediate PDF) which is then imported, The quality is this is not ideal.
This dual conversion coupled with the somewhat obvious concerns previously noted about SVG rendering at Wikimedia projects, got me wondering if more direct backend support for EPS would be better, down rendering to PNG (as is currently done for SVG)..
I am opening this "bug" so that more direct EPS support can be disscussed and an appropriate architectural approach taken.
It was my understanding some PDF pages were already rendered using something like GhostScript-> Image, so with some modification, a soloution for EPS file (which are typically single page) could be created...
