I've been there and asked.

Ace can offer me typeset files -- for $200 a pop, because they don't own them, they outsourced the typesetting ages ago.

On the other hand, I've had good luck asking my fans to email me a DRM-cracked ebook edition of my own work :)

Have you tried it with Asimov's or any of the other magazines?

Nope. Never felt the need to. I should add, Asimov's, F&SF and Analog are available via Fictionwise.com in DRM-free electronic editions, so as long as I remembered to spring for $5 or so in the month of publication ...

... you could pay for a copy of your own story.
