Interesting! This is good evidence that FixPolygon's technique could be
improved and integrated directly into Mathematica's Export.

Now the next questions are:
  (a) how to do this programatically (and in my student copy of the
program, at least, the PDF needs post-processing to remove a "Printed
by Mathematica" banner and crop the margins), and
  (b) if it's possible to use the same technique to get high quality
EPS files too.

Best regards,
