I've got an initial changeset prepared. I did some testing, but hope to do 
more. I'm running short of free time, so I'd appreciate if others can take a 

The gl2ps functionality needs to be extended to allow for ps/pdf/pgf/svg/latex 
output. Until then those device won't work.

However, the other device types should work with this changeset (i.e. bitmaps, 
dxf, metafont, etc).

I've made a few changes to __gnuplot_print__, but much more needs to be done 
after these changes are committed.

I've not pushed this yet, but if it is preferred that I do that, let me know.
