Yes, you're right, I saw this idea in gridflow. I will try it.

starting point. Because once you have SVG, you can use one of hundred 
different tools to convert to PNG, JPG or any image format you can dream of

With inkscape you can convert .ps into .svg :
inkscape pd.ps --export-plain-svg=pd.svg

I don't know if we can command Pd to print patchs in .ps (in a command 
line). It could strong and cross-platform.
