[tex-k] (fwd) Bug#337805: tetex-bin: dvips should include document's title in Postscript instead of DVI filename

    dvips embeds by default information into the PS file which I argued
    is a tiny, but still a leak of privacy that can have unintended

I would accept creating a new option so that people who are concerned
can change it for themselves, but not changing the default.  One
person's "leak of privacy" is another person's "useful information".  I
can't imagine anything else reasonable to put there.  Would you would
just want a random string?  That *would* elicit complaints, I'm sure.

    Realistically, I don't expect dvips to change: 

That's pretty realistic, all right :).

All the best,
