Okay. I've heard of this Metapost thing. After further investigation
it doesn't look as scary as I first thought. I can't seem to find
anything saying that gradient fills are supported directly but I've
found a few examples of drawing multiple shapes with changing colours
which will recreate the effect, so I'll start with those.

Many thanks,
