Intent to package xgobi
xgobi is a data-visualisation program written by Bellcore / AT&T
statisticians a few years ago. It is non-free. Unless anyone objects, I
should be ready to upload something in the next days.
FYI, Here the start of the manual page:

xgobi is an interactive dynamic graphics program for data
visualization in the X Window System. It is especially
designed for the exploration of multivariate data. Its
basic plot is a scatterplot, and these are some of the
tools available for scatterplot display and manipulation:
Cycling rapidly through two-variable scatter plots.
Three-dimensional rotation, including trackball con
Grand tour rotation: a smooth randomized sequence of
two-dimensional projections in order to explore a
higher-dimensional point cloud.
Brushing: the ability to change the color or plotting
character of a point or a group of points.
Scaling: moving and reshaping the plot interactively.
Identification: displaying an label next to a point in
the plot window.
Linking: Brushing, identification and touring are
linked; that is, actions in the window of one XGobi
process are immediately reflected in another XGobi win
dow displaying the same data.
Line editing: Any pair of points can be connected with
a line segment.
Transformation: A menu of data transformations is
Postscript plotting: The contents of the plot windows
can be written out to postscript files for high-quality
Online help: Most of the XGobi buttons and windows
have associated help files that can be displayed during
an XGobi session. Click on the Help button toward the
top right of the window for instructions.
XGobi has a direct manipulation interface, and all the
above actions are performed using the mouse.
