Re: pgplot y-axis key

Thanks, Mike, for the example.  I see how I could draw the multiplot "by hand"
using _pgplot primitives (I think), although that would require a lot of
retrofitting of code.  That's tolerable, but I'd have to set up the multiplot
panes by hand, too.  This works great for single-pane plots, and I'll use it
for those.

Is there any way to just write over the y axis numbers?  (I'd probably just do
this in photoshop if it came to it.)  xylabel() does seem to plot "outside the
box", so I could use it to overwrite the label.  Unfortunately, 
xylabel(x, y, "
  ") doesn't work... the routine seems to ignore spaces.  Is there something
like the old ASCII 255 I could use, or is there another way to blank a region?
