We can probably standardize the version of gs on the buildbot machines,

I understood Jouni's idea to be to save the .pdfs as baseline images --
then the same version of gs would be used to generated the rasterized
images for the baseline and test result -- the version on your computer.
I think this is the way to go (either that or compare the PDFs directly
Yes, that's what I meant: we want to test that the PDF file generated by
the code is "equivalent" to the baseline, and aside from some metadata
in the files, I think "equivalence" should mean that the files generate
the same rasterized output on some particular PDF renderer.
I suppose Ghostscript is widespread enough that we can assume that it
exists in the test environment? Or is there some buildout magic that we
should add in some file?
