I agree that these little details, while each may seem like a simple
problem, add up to a major headache, especially given that the code
already exists in other places (gnuplot, plplot, NCAR graphics, etc.).

My preference would be to use some existing code if at all possible,
but I don't know where to find something that is relatively easy to
use and not closely tied to a specific plotting package.
