You might also consider jgraph or plotutils, among others.  For the
latter, you could probably publish libplot (or the bits you need) as
guile functions using guile's C interface.

Another alternative *might* be to just use regular guile-level sockets
and pass plain old scheme forms, via write/read between processes.

You might want to check out guile's 1.5.1 beta version, soon to be
1.6.0.  The documentation is much improved (many thanks to those
working on it).  You can find it at
