I understand, but none of them are interpreted, only "color" special is
interpreted by pyxplot. It does not contain arbitrary TeX documents,
just minimal latex document with a page containing the plot.

Maybe I do it wrong, but that does not work:
	\PassOptionsToPackage{backend = dvipdfmx}{expl3}
	Hello World
still contains the dvi special for loading l3backend-dvips.pro
