One of the major difficulties I had is that I don't know gnuplot well,

frontend.  Without a good backend, it's tough to test the frontend.  The
other problem is that with the speed of the interpreter, it takes ~30
second to create first figure.

Does it have to be a gnuplot? -- Do not get me wrong I do think that
gnuplot is a fine stand-alone program. But in a situation where we
want to emulate matlab behavior i may not be the best choice.
I believe even John once said that if he had to start all over
again he is not sure that his choice for a graphical end would
be gnuplot. Since this graphics handle thing is a new thing perhaps
we could think of a different backend?
