New users of gnuplot are often overwhelmed by the large number of available output terminals. In order to give them some hint on which terminal to use the attached patch adds a rough classification to the "terminals" section. I am aware that this is to some degree subjective and maybe also incomplete. So I am putting this here as a starting point for discussion.

    I am reminded of Jorge Luis Borges' sardonic classification of animals:
    http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?BorgesClassificationOfAnimals

    I don't think that a scheme placing caca, grass, qt, sun, and windows all in the same category is any sort of improvement over the current alphabetic enumeration.
