Yes - in PDF output. In PostScript back-end, we insert
an EPS document as is, dropping the preview instead.
If you need EPS in XEP documents right now, the only
feasible way is to produce PostScript, and then
distill to PDF.

In future versions, we expect that our PDF generator
will be capable of inserting PDF images directly into
PDF code. We are also working on SVG support
that should become the primary format for vector
graphics in XEP.
