Does anyone know of a good reference (book, tutorial, code package) for
the best way to handle the conversion of graphics options to an
equivalent set of primitives.

Eg. I want to write a function which makes Line[] primitives and does 
Show[Graphics[{...}],...] but can handle options in the way that
ParametricPlot(3D) does (so PlotStyle, PlotRange do what you would
expect them to, etc.).
