I don't need or want to do this.

I want to export everything I define with a line like:

  FigureBlahBlahBlah = SomethingThatGeneratesGraphics[]

into an EPS file called FigureBlahBlahBlah.EPS.  There's nothing
magical about the prefix "Figure"; it's just a convention I use, since
the postscript files end up as figures in hand-typed LaTeX documents.

Note that the code

  Export[#<>".EPS", ToExpression[#], "EPS"] & /@ Names["Figure*"]

does this _almost_ correctly.  Why only almost?  From the unclear
question:

In the code above, the anonymous function will get mapped over any
symbol in the system that happens to start with "Figure" (right?). I'm
only interested in definitions that appear explicity in the current
window.

This isn't a show-stopper, just a minor annoyance.
