Not completely true.  The info 'it is from gnuplot-3.6beta' is too
short.  Which beta?
I know and have beta-340, beta-347, beta-348 and beta-349

True, but I guess you get trouble with the copyright.  And with the
strange rule '... you may not give it away with changed code
... changes must be shipped as patches ...'

This has nothing to do whether I like it or not.

[snip advantages]

For my taste a nice plotting library instead of gnuplot would be
Gnuplot is good but I only need 2D- and 3D-plotting functions on
diffent devices without a second interpreter level.
For this PLplot is nice but development has stopped.  But the GNU
plotutils (the plot-library) comes in the future I think.
