I called it 'pgf' because 'tex' was already taken, and pgf is the underlying technology of pgfplots. You get stunningly precise labels and consistency in your LaTeX document (linewidths, math, etc).

Dear Sebastian,

Thanks for this great patch! I've merged a modified version, with most of the code moved to Graphics/gl2pgf.cpp. 

Can you give it a try and let me know if I broke anything?
