Reassigning to default owner of this component since I don't have time to work
on it now, and my focus is elsewhere (web archive formats).

Per Comment 24, I think this is the best approach:

Displaying a dynamically-composed PDF to announce the error would be
user-friendly for interactive users, but not if someone was trying to use
WebKit programmatically.  In that case they'd pull their hair out trying to
come up with a work-around since they'd see a valid PS file be displayed
without knowing whether an error had happened or not.
