I guess since I wrote plot primarily as a diagnostic, I value the
precision of the thinner lines (e.g. particularly for things line
targen/ofps). Of course this preference may well depend on the resolution
of your display.

<    XSetLineAttributes(mydisplay, mygc, 1, LineOnOffDash, CapButt, JoinBevel);
        XSetLineAttributes(mydisplay, mygc, 0, LineOnOffDash, CapButt, 

I'm happy to add this mod to my source though.

It still not as smooth and nice as the mac osx version (1)  , but I
think it's somewhat better.

Yes, the OS X stuff looks pretty nice with it's anti-aliased rendering. The
plot library is intended to be pretty minimal and close to the metal though,
whereas a full blown GUI could use something more sophisticated using an
anti-aliased rendering library on MSWindows and X11.
