Follow-up Comment #15, bug #44187 (project octave):

I've tried to minimize changes in the changeset, as it really only corrects
the buggy behavior and makes gnuplot output functional, which right now it
isn't.  That was the point of aiming for some intermediate stable point.  The
only thing that is different from current behavior is that -dpng will create
actual grayscale under the -mono flag, whereas all other devices are the same
for the most part.  (EPS still defaults to mono, etc.  And there is always
-dcairopng as an alternative PNG output format.)

To add grayscale as we think it should behave is the more significant step and
is not part of this changeset.

I'd say apply the changeset and let developers give it a try.  We can always
back it out easily prior to 4.0 if there is a major problem because there is
little activity in this private subdirectory.  I'd rather take a bit of risk
right now and have something fairly functional in 4.0 that remains stable
until 4.X or 5.X rather than have marginal/buggy performance for all that
while.  That way it gives some time to redo the setup without having reports
of broken output to deal with.
