I'm not familiar with xd3d (but I will be). An Octave interface for
kmatplot exists, and it would be trivial to allow kmatplot output to be
included TeXmacs. kmatplot is quite "purty" and gives you the advantage of
upgrading Octave's graphics as well -- which you mentioned that you use.

An OpenGL plug-in for TeXmacs? In what sense do you mean this?

It would be nice to be able to render OpenGL into a TeXmacs document
via Scheme. There are Mesa bindings for Guile, so this shouldn't be too
