 I don't think that this is the right call, if I understand you correctly.
So, to double check that I understand correctly, are you planning to provide
a compatibility layer for plot with some other name? If so, did you consider
leaving that as the plot library for a few releases to give people time to
migrate what they care about?

that the old plot library does little enough that users have been unwilling
or unable to use it for important things. (Generally, of course. And except
for Robby. :D)
