Follow-up Comment #44, bug #45494 (project octave):

@Dan: as a summary 
In comment #34 I used "-dpdfwrite" (I also could have used "-dpdf", which is
the same with a page around the figure) precisely because it goes through the
eps conversion step: the patch enables shading in the original
gl2ps>>>postscript output and the aim was to show that the conversion to pdf
works and may be an option in cases where the native gl2ps>>>pdf output fails
(see the end of comment #15)

In comment #17 I proposed to make gl2ps>>>pdf the default for pdf related
outputs and introduce a new format ("-dpdfgs") to handle the gl2ps>>>eps>>>pdf
tool chain. Now the question is wether the eps files should have shading
enabled by default. 
* cons:
** large files for shaded surfaces: lets not forget that we have the raster
output (png, jpg) for this kind of complicated cases, 
** slow printing
** slow rendering in Acroread, 
* pros: sometimes better looking
Not really convincing I guess but, again, may be an option (see "-e" new
option in comment #17)
