Xerox releases Splash PPDs for OS X Network
Xerox has just released OS X PPDs for the Splash RIP, available on their Splash support page.

We have a Xerox 5765 with a RIP running Splash on a Beige G3 (OS 8.6). This was the standard configuration four years ago. Mac OS X was not supported until today (client side). The only downside to the new software is that you have to use AppleTalk. From the ReadMe in the installation file:
The Splash OS X PPD installer installs PPDs for all currently released Splash products for Mac OS X. The products installed are: G630, G620, G610, PCI 6.0, PCI 5.0, DC 4.0, DC 3.0, DC 2.0.
I have installed and used the PPD for the 5799 v.6.0 without any problems.

Are any PPD files _NOT_ compatible?

I have to say, I haven't found any PPD files for any of my work printers to *not* work under OS X....

The only printes we've had trouble with have been ones with a custom Chooser extension that didn't come with a PPD file.

Note that a lot of the OS 9 printer PPD files didn't have the extension PPD on them, and a couple I found I needed to convert to unix line endings.
