Hi Joris,

So, in your view, plotting should be completely handled on the Maxima side. I 
had struggled with both. I could be done either way. The idea I had with 
tm-plotxxx commands was to give the user a choice; Do you want to plot 
externally or in-line? Use tm-plotxxx for inline, native Maxima commands for 
external. The differnet Maxima versions is a bit of a sticky situation as well.

Actually I've kind of put this off to the side to work on the hhelp plugin. 
Writing it is giving me a better understanding of the internals of TeXmacs. 
Once I grok TeXmacs and Scheme I'll probably return to Maxima. WYSIWYG math and 
the Maxima plug-in are what drew me to TeXmacs in the first place.
