#322 PDL::Demos system needs overhaul

other (94)

The PDL::Demos infrastructure grew ad-hoc and needs a major overhaul.

As one of many examples, the main high-level routines, in PDL::Demos::Routines, are suppled by "use PDL::Demos::Screen" rather than use "use PDL::Demos::Routines" or "use PDL::Demos". They are manually imported by each demo module. Gack.

It's too late to do anything for the current release but someone needs to overhaul the demos system. This is a placemarker to ensure that happens.

    The demos need to be more robust as well: graphics that are less specific to a given output module would be nice (especially since PGPLOT is now a bit difficult to get working from source and we have a number of excellent alternatives).

    Lower priority to 4 as part of PDL-2.008 triage.
