Actually, Greg Warnes has written code to do this.  I haven't folded it
in because of time and because I'd like to integrate it with a move
to an event driven interface.  The event model is needed to handle
the resize problem.  I'd also like to make it possible to maintain
the picture description on disk rather than memory.  I have memories
of the first time I threw 100,000 points at the S plotting code
and my poor little Sun 3/50 buckled at the knees.
