The next version of pstoedit will include a backend towards
Mathematica contributed by Manfred Thole <manfred at>

But - if Mathematica can already process simple PostScript,
you could try to run your original Postscript through
	pstoedit -f ps 
to get a much simpler PostScript which maybe Mathematica
is able to read directly.
