I think you may have just implemented/discovered/unearthed the Holy Grail! This looks fantastic. We have been fighting with EPS files for years and trying to come up with a way to have plots that can be embedded in Office documents that look good on the screen for presentations and still print well.
The EPS preview image has never worked very well and the resulting files almost always had problems when moved from MS Office on the PC to/from the Mac. If your system works well across platforms, that could save the engineers here a lot of time.
We'll have to download this and give it a try. Thanks!

I just submitted a patch to add a new non-interactive backend that
produces enhanced metafiles, an OpenOffice and Microsoft Windows
scalable graphics format that can also be embedded in .rtf files.
The backend is based on my pyemf package that I finally released with
its first public beta:
The API should be stable -- I'm only planning on adding to it and not
changing any existing method signatures in the version 2.0.* series.
Oh, and I didn't say so in the patch itself, but I'm happy to donate
the patch to matplotlib under the default matplotlib license.
