There's now a style file for this available at: bazaar.launchpad.net/~tex-sx/tex-sx/development/view/head:/… (no documentation yet, though)

comment Flushing PGF commands and local variable
@Peter: You could hide it a bit using some wizardry from pgfkeys. There's a method there to set a key having done a single expansion first. But however you dress it up, it boils down to expanding something before \addplot sees it. The principle behind it, I think, is that paths are quite "fluid" until they are finished so to enable complicated transformations and decorations, one wants to save the path as much "as is" as possible. You want to "half bake" it, which is possible but not via "high end" macros.

comment Topological Quantum Field Theory diagrams with pstricks or tikz
@tetrapharmakon: From your prior comment, it looks as though you need to look at the details of how TikZ places a node. In short, saying \node[anchor=east] (a.north) {}; places the east anchor of the new node at the same place as the north anchor of the old node. The other thing you have to know is that when you rotate a node then the anchors rotate as well, so that \node[rotate=180] {}; swaps the east and west anchors, and the north and south.

@tetrapharmakon: I was serious when I said it was overkill! I know the sort of diagram that you want, I was just being a little silly posting that link (plus I'm quite pleased with that picture).
