Au contraire.  People *do* keep around Postscript all the time -- when you
download a technical paper, the chance that it is in Postscript or PDF
is pretty close to 100%, unless it comes from the W3C or some such place
that has an ax to grind.

In any case, people don't always *want* the latest version.  Sometimes they
want the version that was published (i.e. distributed to the public,
not necessarily printed) on January 12, 1999, with not a jot changed.
