Thats a good idea !

The plot function already accepts property name/value pairs. Is the syntax 
below ok ?

        plot (x, y, "-squeeze")

Since this feature may not be desired for all lines, the flag should only be 
applied to the line object proceeding it.

        plot (x1, y1, "-squeeze", x2, y2, "color", "r")

This would allow x1 and y1 to be squeezed (if needed) and produce a blue solid 
line. The second line would not be squeezed and would produce a red solid line.

Look ok ?
