[R] PostScript elocution

I noticed what may be a useful thing while wrestling with StarOffice the other day.
While SO has saved me many a time by importing and exporting M$Word documents
flawlessly, it usually barfs on PostScript plots from R, complaining that they are
an "Unknown graphics format"!
On  long shot, I manually edited the header line by adding " EPSF 2.0" and blow me
down, it worked!  I tried to trace the PostScript header file, but couldn't find
one, and as it's an internal function, didn't manage to come up with a fix.  Is it
worthwhile providing a fix for the (hopefully) C code?  I'd be happy to have a go,
as it is incredibly useful as far as I'm concerned.

And I couldn't resist adding:

Perhaps I should add a section on the other "R" and rename mine "Kicking Rs"?
