That's awesome! I know you like to program in raw postscript, but for
the rest of us...
Will programs like Inkscape generate sane postscript?

As for the baud rate, it shouldn't matter at all, since the cutter
supports RTS/CTS (hardware flow control). I suspect the 2400 baud bit
came from someone with their flow control turned off.
