Sure, it's a bitmap, but the naked eye resolution is only 100 $\mu$m so that a vectorized solution is overkilling in most common situations IMHO. I have to zoom by a factor 1200% to see some pixellization problems on my screen, but my eyes are admitedly getting older and older, one more instance of fortune(75) issue I guess :-(

Not so sure, I had to convert it a long time ago into a PDF format for a reason I don't remember. I'm sharing my *.rnw on a CVS with colleages working under Linux, Unix, Mac and Windows, so the reason could be that there was a problem in a given platform. The PDF choice is defensive in the sense that we are Sweaving with \SweaveOpts{pdf = T, eps = F}, so that including PDF is a pre-condition.

There was a not so-old thread about this on R-devel:
