If it passes backend driver and appears logically correct to you,
check it in. I added those 20 million pairs to be on the safe side
when I wrote the PS backend, but was never very happy about them.

I checked in the patch yesterday evening. The patch decreased the
total size of the PostScript files generated by backend_driver.py from
37MB to 31MB.

All the best,
