I'd like to try my hand at producing a patch to allow linewidths
in plot. I'm wondering which approach would be best.

There no way to follow the matlab example since MATLAB does
linewiths using their set(handle,'property') feature.

Perhaps the easiest way is to get octave to understand
line styles. That way you can access new gnuplot features with

gset linestyle bla bla bla

and then plot it with gplot data with linestyle foo

or even some variant of plot(x,y,'textstring')

I'll try to produce a patch to do this, unless someone can
think of a better way to go about it.
