Hopefully the variant of 'gs' I provided in PR#16059 will be included in
this re-org!  I find it very nice to have a 'gs' that isn't bloated with
zillions of printer drivers I'll _never_ need!  (I only use 'gs' for my
X11 displays, to convert PDF's to PS, and to produce image format output
-- I have a real PS printer for producing paper output! :-)

Let me know if you need any help in updating or testing it for a new 'gs'.
