Currently this is not possible. The command line version is not linked with
plotting functionality and the GUI version currently has no interface for
controlling it externally (I was planning to do this, but so far didn't get
to it).

If you just need plotting by giving me a bunch of point values, I'm really
just using gtkextra for the plotting functionality, perhaps directly using
that is a better choice. Or using scigraphica, I think that was the original
purpose of scigraphica.
