The old 'plot' and 'plot3d' took a procedure with the contract 
(some-drawing-area -> void?), which was meant to draw the plot. The 
'mix' function composes them.

I'm not asking you to try again. It's more efficient for everyone if I 
do the porting page anyway. Besides, adding a porting page will allow me 
to solve some minor organizational problems in the docs as they are.

Thanks for wanting to help with that.

I thought of a task you'd "be useful for". If it's not too much trouble, 
could you compile your papers with the plots in them and see what breaks?
