At the current time, I suspect that OpenPrinting Vector is also not very stable
-- just a general impression.

In general, support of 'vector' devices is much more difficult. We (Artifex)
actively maintain the pdfwrite and ps2write vector devices. Some others get
less complex vector devices also have active support pxl*** (Hin-Tak) and
pswrite (Artifex, but low priority).

So far, Artifex has not taken on the opv* devices.

The 'private' PPD extensions (which turn into cups device parameeters) may
be a problem, but I think it is not yet time to empty "bath that includes
the baby" since implementing all of the functionality in a new device will
also require a great effort.

With repect to IJS, We would need to survey the features supported via CUPS
custom PPD entries and see how much work they would need with IJS. This may
lead to a similar situation -- To implement features beyond standard Adobe
defined 'setpagedevice' support that CUPS may require more work than fixing
the cups device implementation.
