[R] Two questions

1. I note that help for the postscript device claims "The
postscript produced by R is EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)
compatible...". It does not say it is EPS *compliant*.
Indeed, the EPS produced by R includes a \showpage command
which I believe (not that I'm an expert!) non-standard EPS.
My question: Is there any reason why it is EPS compatible,
but not compliant? (I ask because the \showpage caused me
a minor trouble once.)
2. R and S-Plus restrict the available combinations of
link functions and response distributions when using glm.
The combinations allowed are certainly sensible, but what is
the logic for disallowing other combinations (eg identity
link only is allowed for the gaussian family)? I also
know there are ways around it; I was just wondering about
