Update of bug #58001 (project octave):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 1 - Wish               
                Priority:              5 - Normal => 1 - Later              
                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix

                 Summary:      to big size of svg => All points in plot sent
to output resulting in very large files


Follow-up Comment #2:

This is known Octave behavior.  Whether you want to want to call it a bug or a
feature is down to interpretation.  The same behavior is also exhibited
onscreen.  The number of points that Matlab passes through their plotting
pipeline to OpenGL for rendering is based on the resolution and zoom level of
the screen.  Octave takes the easy approach and just plots everything.  The
same thing happens for printing (since it is based on the plot).  If you have
a lot of points then every one will get sent to the eventual plot.

Many Octave users prefer control over ease of use.  With that frame of mind,
it is prefered to filter the number of points in a manner that is most
appropriate for *your* data, rather than relying on an sort of automated
algorithm which can't be best for all datasets.

Tentatively marking as "Won't Fix".
