You could try a variation of the trick the plot documentation uses to 
make vector graphics for the PDF doc build. The relevant code is in 

   (define plot-eval
     (let ([eval  (make-base-eval)])
       (eval '(begin
                (require <some requires> ...
                         (rename-in (except-in plot plot plot3d)
                                    [plot-pict  plot]
                                    [plot3d-pict  plot3d])

Every plot page uses `plot-eval' to make an evaluator, so every example 
plot in the documentation actually uses `plot-pict' instead of `plot'. 
You could try something like this, but using `plot-bitmap'. Then - I 
think - you wouldn't need `file/convertible'.
