I'm wondering what section a plotting package should go in.
As a scientist, I thought `graphics', but that may be because of `plotting
a graph' (or because I'm french-speaking).  We tend to put all science
stuff in math, whether they are actually math or not.

Perhaps a new `scientific' section?

Good idea.
