For all my "serious" plots I do complete automation using EpsTk.  It is
a long-term, portable solution for producing high-quality EPS plots.

It lacks some features, though.  For example, no transparency.  Recently
I had to use that and I resorted to using Gnuplot to generate an SVG
file which I then converted to PDF using Inkscape in batch mode, all
from an Octave script.
