Would it be possible to have 'plstrl' made public in a next release? This is a useful general-purpose function that becomes unavailable in distros that enforce -fvisibility=hidden. Thanks!

    The direction I believe we should go instead is to withdraw plstrl and replace it with a public API function called pl_get_string_extent which returns both the x and y extents of the character string. Please bring up this topic on the plplot-devel mailing list, and we should discuss it some more there.
