Today, I've been playing around with gnuplot a little bit. You have to 
look around for decent documentation so it was only after quite some 
time and fiddling around that I found out that right now you can 
actually only use 2 y-axes :-(

I liked the fact that I could easily (after figuring out how to do it 
:-) change a lot of parameters, but I miss the y-axes, so gnuplot is 
probably not for me.
