I recently compared results of image conversion from raster formats (JPEG, PNG)
to EPS performed by bmeps 1.2.7 from current MiKTeX and by sam2p utility (see
http://www.inf.bme.hu/~pts/sam2p/ and http://code.google.com/p/sam2p/ ).
My tests have shown that sam2p provides much smaller EPS files because it
effectively uses PostScript compression algorithms (ZIP, RLE, LZW) for bitmaps.
I think that sam2p deserves to become a good replacement for bmeps in a future
versions of MiKTeX.
