I guess the main reasons such a feature doesn't exist yet are
1) It hasn't been requested strongly.
2) It's not strictly needed. You can get essentially the same effect by
plotting the dataset twice, once 'with points', and again 'with lines'
using different 'every' modifiers for each. A little fiddling with
keys and line types will be needed, of course.
And please keep in mind that gnuplot-info is the user mailing list.
Suggestions of patches should really go to our development web site,
or the -beta mailing list. I've Cc'ed that list for this reply.
