I had thought that you could use FullGraphics to get the coordinates
of axes lines and tick marks, then write a function to project the
coordinates of the function points, axes, tick marks, etc, onto a
plane and redraw as 2D graphics.  Alas, FullGraphics does not work on
Graphics3D objects.  Perhaps there is another way to crack into the
underlying OpenGL structure, but I cannot find it.

You may have to work with bitmaps.  It is my understanding that
publishers like to work with large TIFF files anyway (memory is no
object to them.)
