For PDL (Perl Data Language), this also recently came up. It used to
be based on PGPLOT, but there has been some discussion to make a very
general graphics interface in the package and then support several
final "rendering" packages. 

(See for info about PDL
and links to the archive)

It think this might be a better way to go. There are always people who
like one plotting package better than others, so if a general
interface that could work with several packages could be conceived,
that would definitely be preferrable. (Esp. when porting code)
