That's understandable. I don't think we should worry about how external
renderers handle a test that even cairo/pixman fails. So how about
pushing? :-) But before you do, you should remove the duplicate entry
for /Interpolate from pdf - the definition in IMAGE_DICTIONARY should
take just %s (as opposed to true).

Having achieved my original goal (to be able to run the cairo test suite
faster, faithfully and with near-idempotence :-) for my minimal PS
interpreter (plug:
http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=users/ickle/micro-gs;a=summary), I've
been very impressed by cairo and your hard work on the PS/PDF backends.
