That's one good way to do it. Another way would be to give my new PostScript
renderer a try, which would produce EPS you can import into another document for

It's not perfect yet by any means (lots of rules need to be added) but looks
pretty good for most stuff IMHO. If you do give this a try I'd be interested in
any bugs you get (especially importing into other documents and printing them).
