Since Gnuplot only manages one plotting window at a time, you need to create new
instances.  If you use the extra support in IPython.GnuplotRuntime, you'll find
a gp_new() function which does precisely that.  The equivalent with bare
Gnuplot.py is, if I recall correctly, a call to the class constructor.
