I've just created svg and ps versions of one graph using "graph."
Pretty easy.  The big problem is getting the look of the rest of my
LaTeX document within the graph (e.g. axis labels).  I wouldn't want to
get a new look just so I can use a particular graphing package when
another offers the more flexible option.

It seems the best options are GNUPLOT and a relative newcomer called
PLPlot[1] that I will try out today.
