Org plot is there for quick and easy plotting.  I would recommend using
babel with gnuplot source blocks.  You can easily pass tables as data,
and configure your plot as you wish.  Unfortunately I have not done this
recently, so I don't have any simple examples handy, but I'm sure there
are plenty on Worg.

Hope this helps,
