dev.copy2pdf() to come very close (or just use it -- R's pdf device will
copy well enough unless you need exotic fonts).
I think the changes needed are from
oc$device <- pdf
oc$onefile <- FALSE
oc$paper <- "special"
oc$device <- quartz
oc$type <- "pdf"
but I'm not sitting in front of a Mac.
(Had quartz(type="pdf") been working at feature freeze for 2.7.0 we might
have made this an option in dev.copy2pdf, but it was broken until
