#72 multiplot enhancements


it should be possible to add a general
title/footer/timestamp to a multiplot screen.

the sub-plots should not have timestamp at all.

    I really don't think we can do it, that way --- it would break the sacred
    backward compatibility of plot scripts.

    Instead we would need new commands to generate 'multititle' or
    'multitimestamp' decorations. Alternatively there could be options to 'set
    multiplot' naming some plot elements that are to be output at full page
    size, even before the first plot command is executed. Positioning them
    could easily turn out to be a royal pain in the lower back though, without
    any graph box to fix the layout.

    cvs version now has an option
    set multiplot {title "titlestring"} {layout ....}

    In auto-layout mode, it should "just work".
    If you are manually placing the plots you'll have to allow
    for the space taken up at the top of the page by the title.

    No change from current behaviour if you do not provide a title.
    If you want a timestamp instead, well there's the option
    set multiplot title "Real Title\n `date`"

    Oh yeah, did I mention it handles multi-line titles?
