The "replot" function is marked as a "rawcommand" because you can

  gplot "sin(x)"
  replot "cos(x)"

I guess I have a more general issue here...
Since it is essentially a different interpreter
with its own different syntax (somewhat like C preprocessor macros), its commands
should be made to look different from the "normal"
octave.  So I suggest to make all rawcommand (yes, all four
of them) names in a __xxxx__ form. The __replot__
could be used directly in low-level routines, and
a simple replot.m wrapper will provided an enduser with "replot" command that behaves just like the rest of octave commands.

The transition will bring some pain, but that is assumed
with versions 2.9.x ...
