hey, what's the hurry - I have other people and other code to tend to - a delay 
of a few days for such a minor issue is certainly acceptable ;)

I don't think that there is any objective way to determine "prettines" of a 
PostScript previewer: so this is mostly about what we decide to do - I don't 
really care what the default is.

I have been asked repeatedly for this feature since some PostScript previewers 
have it. I even find it useful on some occasions. and therefore it stays 

anyway, the major problem with this outlining has been the noticeable delay 
when starting to move the document with outlining turned on: this has been a 
bug that I fixed recently - I have not commited the code yet, since I am still 
looking for a lost reference of an UIContainer instance that I've introduced 
with some of the changes.
