Wow, maybe I should learn how this works instead of ever bothering with
gnuplot again. Pretty nice.

1. If built --with-gnome, the Gnome interface should be the default, since
it's so much nicer than the other interface. :-)

2. I think you might want to look into using a ZvtTerm widget instead of
a GtkText for the console - you would get dingus support, a lot nicer
display, and automatic handling of all the low-level details that you are
probably having to do by hand now.
