Denemo uses postscript to generate a title page with a border.
  From a glance at the output of

git grep "\\\\postscript"

in the Denemo repository, that should be easy to convert
to \path as above.
it was this paper block I had in mind specifically

Similarly, you can convert the \postscript call in that to
something like this:

\with-dimensions-from \null
  \translate #'(2 . -3)
  \path #0.2
        #'((moveto 0 0)
           (lineto 104 0)
           (lineto 104 -150)
           (lineto 0 -150)
  \translate #'(3 . -4)
  \path #0.1
        #'((moveto 0 0)
           (lineto 102 0)
           (lineto 102 -148)
           (lineto 0 -148)

You even get the advantage that this now works
with SVG output.

(though I guess
creating customized ornaments done via eps files would also fail):

In the end we might support EPS, see Han-Wen's original

Even if we don't, including PDF documents should become
supported, and one will be able to convert one's EPS
files into PDF to include them.
