Are you planning in implementing some kind of "handle graphics" in Octave, John? I believe that Octave should be shipped with a common library for whoever who wants to implement a visualisation application to Octave.

This library is should be responsible that "handle-graphics" hierarchy are ensured.

Props-library in Oplot works in this way, if the code is "octaveized" and refactored.
Oplot works only as a "frontend", a visualisation application.

If this is wanted, then a frontend to every visualisation library that use a "props"-library would be made. I know there are frontends to gnuplot written in Qt. This could be made in tcl/tk as well. Every visualisation application could satisfy these needs.

A props-similar library is then working as a handle-graphics framework, that every developer that makes a visualisation application to octave must use.
And Octave should be released  with such a library.

If I had enough time, I could e.g make a frontend to e.g gnuplot-4.x in Qt, using a "common handle graphics" framework to Octave.
This is just a proof of concept, and it's not very hard to implement....;-)

Am I thinking correctly?
