Well, good intentions is one thing, wrong behaviour is another?  If
the user has specified "ind:1 deps:(2)", even if org-plot identifies
column 1 as having labels for the tic marks, the generated parameter
to the plot command should be, at best:

  ... using 1:2:xticlabels(1) ...

which is actually nonsensical as well but not as bad as what is
currently generated:

  ... using 1:xticlabels(1)

which completely ignores the "deps:(2)" option!

In any case, I'm not suggesting in any way that this is a critical
bug!  Simply removing the empty line allows org-plot to work
