[pstricks] two small comments about pst-plot

Dear Herbert,

1.       In pst-plot, I have used labelFontSize=\scriptstyle (in mathLabel=true) to decrease the size of the labels. As I am using a log scale, it effectively decreases the size of the base but not of the exponent and the graph looks not beautiful.  To have the good behavior, I have switched to mathLabel=false and labelFontSize=\tiny and here everything is perfect. (My example comes from a graph I did for powerdot where even \tiny is readable)

2.       Would it be possible to have an option to rotate the labels for de x-axis like in pst-spectra ? (maybe also for the y-axis ?)

Best regards,
