hi dimitris,

i use dave's package far more often than not, but mostly for simple 
multiple graphs. so far, the only problem in v6 is that i can no longer 
reliably set colors just by declaring them before a draw command. (i 
hate it when things fail _sometimes_.)

i hate to say it, but i'm moving over to v6 rather slowly. there's a lot 
of things i haven't tried to run yet in v6. i'm still doing my work in 
5.2

vale,
   rip
