On the bright side, the changes he made were (at least many of them) going in
the direction of ipython's gnuplot support. I discussed some of the things
I'd done in ipython about gnuplot with him, since I never wanted to fork
anything. And he ended up implementing quite a bit of that in the mainline
code. I don't know if he used my code or rewrote it himself, but I know that
the new Gnuplot.py will have more of the flavor of IPython's gnuplot support.
What I need to do then is to download his CVS code and make sure that ipython
can at least work with it. Basically, it means putting in a lot of
try/excepts everywhere :( Perhaps I'll send him a message asking him to tag
the CVS version string so that users are a bit less surprised.
