 Freehand: Using userprep file to add customized PostScript tricks

I have a bunch of postscript tricks for rendering different kinds of
special effects.  For example, for any given path, I have procedures
to make it appear airbrushed, embossed with raised edges and a shiny
metal surface, stroked or filled semi-transparently, etc.  I'd love to
be able to use these in Freehand, and it seems to me it should be
possible by using the userprep file to contain the definitions.  Then
I could simply call these procedures from Freehand by setting the
stroke/fill style to PostScript and inserting the appropriate calls.

Has anyone done anything like this?  Does it work?  Is it supported?
Is there a better way?  (The code is way too big to just type into the
stroke/fill panel.)

Thanks very much,
