Feature-wise, Arnaud's viewer is IMHO better suited for practical use
in electrical engineering. Particularly, command-driven I/F and
waveform processing functions is what I personally was waiting for in
free EDA world. Sure, there is still a lot to do but this is a very
good start.

As for dataplot, I found its UI a bit confusing - it seems to me that
you are trying to make it very flexible but that's not what is really
needed (there are other tools better suited for publication quality
graphs and similar applications). Most of the time people want to
display waveforms (usually simple functions of time or frequency) in
stacked up or overlaid panels and browse them efficiently.
