None of your enhancement solve the real problem here which is that
Postscript is the wrong file format. GIMP will never be able to handle
Postscript files good enough that one would attempt to use GIMP to
open and manipulate them. With your changes, GIMP will be able to
create better Postscript files, but that still doesn't make Postscript
the right format for storing scanned image data.

Perhaps it would be better to remove that kludge of calling GS to be
able to open Postscript files and make the postscript plug-in
write-only. Way too many users are tricked into believing that GIMP
would be able to manipulate Postscript files.
