Yes Bill,
You are right (and I'm apologize for that, it just looked too basic even 
to try it, since I worked quite a bit with PlotLegend, but eventually 
never tried to set a permanent setting for it as ).
I checked again, and loading the "Legend" package DO NOT change the 
options of Plot (although written differently in the help for the 
PlotLegend), that is
op=Options[Plot];
<<Graphics`Legend`;
op1=Options[Plot];
op==op1
returns True.
Moreover,
g=Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi},PlotLegend->"Sin"];
and PlotLegend does not appear in AbsoluteOptions[g] (but other options 
of Plot do such as Ticks do appear).
However, it seems that PlotLegend effects the 
"Graphics`Legend`Private`text$..." variable.
Does anyone have an idea what is going on here (I'll look later if there 
is something relevant in M. Trott's book on graphics)

(apologizing again)
yehuda
