    Using CS4... do I import a line art-based logo saved as an illustrator EPS file
    into Photoshop, without rasterizing?

    - Opening the EPS in Photoshop will rasterize it.
    - Drag-dropping from Illustrator to an open Photoshop document will create a
    Vector Smart Object that can only be edited by going back in Illustrator.
    - Copying the paths from Illustrator and pasting them in a Photoshop
    document will offer you to paste as a 1) Smart Object, 2) Pixels
    (rasterized), 3) Path, or 4) Shape Layer.

    You'd think the Shape Layer would do the trick, except it pastes everything
    as one layer, overruling any color distinctions with one flat color.
