The best solution would be to have a simple configuration option, allowing
to either send graphics to a "live" external window, or to have them
automatically in line. There is some advantage also in in line graphs, they
allow keeping a well organized log of the computations. And for simple
computations many of us mix the advantages of the two approaches by using
in line graphs and simply editing and resubmitting the graphics command.
This is the workflow one is accustomed to when using for instance
