Creating previews with Ghostscript (which internally seem to use the EPSWrite 
device) will -- if I'm not mistaken -- convert a lot of graphic elements and 
text to bitmaps, and all colors will turn into plain RGB. Hence, the resulting 
EPS document may not be device independent anymore.

I haven't tried this myself with the latest GS versions, but until a few years 
back I've only seen poor results.

An ideal tool for adding EPS previews is a tool that doesn't make any 
conversion of the content stream, but ONLY interpret that stream and add the 
result hereof as a preview header. I'm not sure that is possible with 
Ghostscript or GSView.
