Hi Guy -- I have some interesting applications with the gnuplot, but to 
make the apps look better, I need  to have the ability to set pt size 
and margins.  I have hard-coded these commands like
set ticsize 2 5
set margin 0
into lonplot.pm
but my problems don't look right at other sites.

I have thought about it and.what I thought might work is to have 
<format></format> or <special></special> tags where anyone could put 
more gnuplot commands than are provided by the current interface -- 
which is very nice, but limited.
Whatever set commands inside the <special> tags would be executed -- of 
course at the authors own risk because with the wrong code the problem 
would be broken, so it has to be made hard to break.
