[cairo] SVG & PS/EPS surfaces

Hi all,

I am making simple drawings (lines/arcs) on SVG surfaces and then 
painting those on PS surfaces which I inlcude in a Latex document.

Contrary to my expectations, the resulting images are pixellated, not 

When I open the .ps files I just see a bunch of encoded stuff, not lines 
and arcs.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there no way to end up with vector-based 
PS/EPS files from Cairo?

(I am using guile-cairo but I suppose that is just a straight-forward 
mapping to the C API.)

Grateful for any help.
