Is it a lilbrary? It looks like it's a scripting language. It looks
like an external dependency and another scripting language to write in
in order to generate plots. We'd rather have something that is native
to Octave and doesn't have to communicate with pipes. Granted, perhaps
we'd be able to rip out the plotting engine as a library, but is there
a real benefit to that?

Are you aware of the fltk backend? We have been transitioning away
from gnuplot for a while, and the results so far look very good:


I think it's unlikely that we'll abandon the OpenGL approach for an
external scriptable graphics engine.
