Hi Eric, Jouni,

Thanks for your replies. I opened an issue here:

https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/992

and wrote an outline of how the PDF backend can be simplified by
making use of gc.restore to keep track of the graphics context. In
essence the PDF backend would then follow the same logic as the Cairo
and Mac OS X backends, so it may be good to compare to these
(especially the Cairo backend, since it's written in pure Python and
easy to understand).

Best,
-Michiel.
