generally no. but:
perhaps with the new ps.map patch in the tracker by Jorge? (#487)
or, you can edit the postscript file by hand. Open in vi (or some other
industrial strength text editor), search for the coordinate text near the end of the file, maybe in (12345) parentheses.
then ~3rd line after text change "1 1 1 C" to another color (R G B, 0.0-1.0) or just remove that line??
I think I've tried it before and it didn't look very nice because the previously masked grid line continued through the text.
