    Yes, I am listening and I vote 1 PDL per updf.

    Reason: Varying capabilities between PDL personalities such as fonts,
    resolutions, printable area, ... would cause too much confusion.

    Additional comments: Having a separate command file will give some

    Additional concerns: Some previsions must be made for PDLs which contain
    multiple modes or commands to do the same thing. For example, PCL5 (a
    single PDL has an HPGL/2 mode). Or are you saying PCL5 not using HPGL/2 is
    one PDL and PCL5 in HPGL/2 MODE is another.
