Slightly off topic, but are there more options for saving EPS files? That is, actually getting compression filtered data streams for the image operator (instead of just a hex encoded uncompressed stream, thereby *bloating* the EPS file).
Don't use EPS for raster image data, use TIFF.
TIFF doesn't require tools which want to get at image data to solve the Halting Problem or implement a complete PostScript interpreter in order to work in the general case.
Using EPS for raster image data is an abomination before all that's holy.

deal with a lot of raster EPS files
