Vectors versus Pixels

Wasn't it Robert Frost who said, “Pixels are pixels, and vectors are vectors, and never the twain shall meet”? They may not meet, but Photoshop 6 brings them awfully close together.

Additionally, paths can affect the pixels around and inside them, especially when you use layer effects.
