We do?  Octave doesn't know about any terminal setting commands that
might happen to be in a user's .gnuplot file.

This part is already (partially) done, so that if someone does a `gset
term ...' and then gnuplot dies, the terminal type is restored when
gnuplot is restarted.  But the internal value is not initialized to
anything, because Octave doesn't know what the initial value of the
terminal type should be.
