Great!  After having ignored your work for so long, I'll try to do better this 
time.  I also have some other patches from Jeff Collins I need to look at, so 
it will be a good thing to wrap all this into a release.

We had some problems with our systems and are still recovering slowly, so my 
system access may be spotty for a few more days.  But I'll fold in Jeff's and 
your code, plus:

- the dreload patch
- I'll try to fix the gettext() bug
- I'll try to fix compatibility with Gnuplot.py v. 1.7, which changed a lot.

If we get all this, it will make a very nice new release, I think.  Please let 
me know of anything else anyone may think is immediately outstanding to put on 
this list.

I'll have a look at the code as is, and let you know if any changes are needed.

Many thanks,
