I would not necessarily be adverse to this.  While I find it
convenient to let the ifeffit core fret about plotting, I could live
without it.  There are a number of solutions which athena and artemis
could take advantage of, including the Perl Data Library (which uses
pgplot) and an interface between perl/Tk and gnuplot.  It would also
be possible (albeit a lot of work) to build a good plotter using the
perl/Tk canvas.  So if you were to do this, I wouldn't squawk too

However, if you remove plotting from the core, I wonder what you would
do for command line use of ifeffit.  One of the nice things about the
command line ifeffit program right now is that it requires neither
python nor perl to do its thing.
