Thanks for the link.
- From a cursory look at the .ps I had that impression:
"The problem is the paps file, it doesn't actually contain any text
at all, in a PostScript sense.
Each character is stored as a procedure, where a path is drawn and
then filled. This is NOT stored in a font, just in a dictionary."
so paps basically "paints" the text.
Yikes. I still hoped to be wrong :-(

Let's hope. In the meantime use a2ps (but I don't know how well that
handles Unicode/UTF-8). Perhaps paps's author had a strong reason to
do it that way.
