I tried to use to the LaTeX letter style together with a signature in
graphics format (convenient for example if one should fax electronically).
However, the following does not work
  \closing{Bye bye,}
because no matter what value one chooses for h, the letter style will set
space below the \closing{} statement in order to make place for the
handwritten signature.

The following does not work either
  \signature{My Name}
  \closing{Bye bye,\\%
because then one will get space between the EPSF signature and the typeset
name, room reserved for the handwritten signature. This form isn't very
logical, because the graphical signature clearly belongs to the \signature

So there appears to be no convenient way to replace the space allocated for
a handwritten signature with a graphical one.

It seems therefore that one should be able to write
  \signature[\includegraphics[0,h][a,b+h]{MySignature.epsf}]{My Name}
  \closing{Bye bye,}

-- Thus if the optional argument of \signature is present, it takes the
place of the space otherwise allocated for a handwritten signature.
