That would indeed be useful (assuming the PostScript files were  
compressed in transmission).

However, what I'm proposing is actually considerably simpler.  I  
think I might have caused some confusion by using the name  
"hyper-TeX", when I'm actually only talking about shipping  
fully-processed DVI files around.  As I was explaining, the amount of  
work that needs to be done beyond what already exists in Mosaic and  
xdvi is quite limited; the main thing is to make sure it's  
implemented in a future-thinking way.
