I disagree. Actuallt I suspect that what is needed instead is a new
function `font-lock-ensure-fontified'. It could be based on:
(defun ps-print-ensure-fontified (start end)
(cond ((and (boundp 'jit-lock-mode) (symbol-value 'jit-lock-mode))
(ps-jitify start end))
((and (boundp 'lazy-lock-mode) (symbol-value 'lazy-lock-mode))
(ps-lazify start end))))

I'd rather keep this property as something used internally in jit-lock and
that nobody else should use or look at (unless they're reimplementing some
kind of alternative to jit-lock).
