If you look at the PostScript at the start of the ToDo output, you'll
see that it more closely resembles the Calendar output from 0.99.7 -
the ToDo code wasn't updated between 0.99.7 and 0.99.8... Its actually
trickier to do, since the week and month views are guaranteed to be
single sheets, but the ToDo list could potentially be multiple sheets.
This makes generating the PostScript in a way that conforms to things
like the Adobe Document Structuring Conventions (DSC), or even coming
close, hard.

None of the PostScript jpilot currently produces fully complies, but
getting the week and month views to do so wouldn't be too hard.
Getting the ToDo and AddressBook and MemoPad output to conform would
require a major restructuring of the way the PostScript is
produced. (Read that as its unlikely to happen anytime soon!)
