I don't thing there is a clean way of doing this, as cantor only detects if 
the command was a plot, by looking if there is a new file created in its temp 
directory and then displays it (I didn't think there was any usecase for doing 
anything else).
As a veery dirty workaround you can just copy your image into sages temp 
directory using something like "tmpfile=tmp_filename(); cp plt.png $tmpfile".
