Apologies to everyone, a message I wrote in this discussion went
off-list accidentally.  I can post it again if anyone's really
interested but I think the following reply from John captures all the
essentials. :-)

Sure.  As I said in my "lost" email, the commands are a secondary issue
to having a means to do it at all.

I read them but was not confident in my understanding.  What you seem to
be saying is that using raw gnuplot commands screws up the plotting
configuration that the internal Octave commands rely on.  Is that correct?

Will it continue to be possible to use "pure Gnuplot" (i.e. Gnuplot and
only Gnuplot) plotting commands from within Octave?  This would make
sense at least for as long as Octave's own commands fall short of what
Gnuplot offers.
