That would indeed be useful (assuming the PostScript files were
compressed in transmission).

However, what I'm proposing is actually considerably simpler. I
think I might have caused some confusion by using the name
"hyper-TeX", when I'm actually only talking about shipping
fully-processed DVI files around. As I was explaining, the amount of
work that needs to be done beyond what already exists in Mosaic and
xdvi is quite limited; the main thing is to make sure it's
implemented in a future-thinking way.
