Here's the start of a more structured writer:
This one produces rst, so you could easily run it through sphinx to
produce a PDF using sphinx's latex export capabilities. It handles
export of figures into image tags already.
What it doesn't have yet is any nice style/CSS support for a prettier output.
It would be both fun and easy to take this and start building a more
structured exporter library that can take a notebook and produce:
- pure latex meant for standalone compilation with pdflatex
- rst for standalone docutils conversion
- rst for sphinx conversion into html or pdf.
