Well, let's think what a scientific plotting package needs, at least
as 'primitives' (in the sense of available through a Lua binding):
- Axis and plot labels
- ability to draw boxes with text in them (can then make legends)
Things like error bars can obviously be done with graphics primitives,
as can marks.
So text is important...

But perhaps useful?
Not everything, of course! Once the basic primitives are available,
everything else can be done in Lua ;)
