[texhax] tikzpicture vs eps, htlatex

Package pgf with tikz (1.01) while used with the latex/pdflatex works
perfectly for me, using gnuplot to provide data for plots.

1) Now I want to send my source to the place without pgf. To do this I
need to convert my foo.tex file into foo4dummies.tex which instead of
contains \includegraphics{...} and the corresponding graphics file.

Surely, I can make a separate picture.tex file, containing only
tikzpicture, generate picture.eps, crop and trim it and replace
\begin{tikzpicture}.....\end{tikzpicture} with

However, is there any automatic converter?

2) htlatex also works well for me (there are problems with colorboxes)
but completely ignores tikzpicture. Surely if there is positive answer
to 1) I could generate foo4dummies.tex and picture.eps and run htlatex
for them. However is there another way to apply htlatex to foo.tex
directly and get a proper graphics?

Thank you in advance
