The Christian Science Monitor does this pretty frequently, and 
2-color ads and brochures are fairly popular because they are 
cheap.  You can look online for examples, but I have to get to my 
prepress job now.

Agreed.  I don't think anyone here is looking for a Photoshop 
clone (I know that I personally hate PS for a variety of 
reasons), but we do realize that it has to compete with 
Photoshop, and not addressing the issues of large sections of the 
design market when your competitor does is probably not the best 
move.
