Even when I use the HighQualityPrint PDF joboptions, and even if I improve on them by configuring the joboptions for Maximum image quality with no compression, when I use Illustrator to Save As EPS, I get a warning that "The Document Raster Effects resolution is 72 ppi or less". And the resulting EPS looks rather blurry in the Doxygen->LaTeX->TeXworks final resultant PDF.
