        I think it is safe to say that others will be interested. I know 
i would like to have them. It would be a much better place to start 
beating on this from :-).

        BTW, i do not think that we will see multiplot as a supported 
function in gnuplot release for a long time. The multiplt+.diff file 
shows the author's directory context. He has his multiplot gode in a 
directory called gplot 3.8! We are currently using 3.5, and 3.6 is 
supposedly in beta ( per niles ). I think those of us who need it badly 
enough *now* are just going to have to get use to operating in a really 
contrived manner for the forseeable future. I can defintely understand 
why jwe would be reluctant to touch it wrt octave at this time. I suspect 
that the final configuration will be lightyears away from what it looks 
like now. Tho, i must say, for what the multiplot patch does right now, 
it does pretty well, IMHO.
