But isn't the fact that it is a leak of privacy for some persons a
really good reason for the default to be not to put it in the file?

You shouldn't have to do anything to prevent a leak of privacy, but
having to do something to add useful information is reasonable.

#include <flame>

In the title field? Mmm... Let me guess... The title? No, that's not
quite adequate, you're right. The filename is far better.

Could dvips put, by default, the title in a filename field, so?
