I have plans to implement this and I already thought about it: that kind of
features would be in Plotter2D, if that class grows too much we can split
it into useful components that will deal with the final presentation of
plots. Of course the same idea have to be applied to Plotter3D. While this
features can represent some effort, I think the most difficult part is not
to arrange the presentation of plots, but try to obtain correct plots
(getting right the data of plots)

I will check how LabPlot are doing this, so we can get a common ground and
not duplicate effort ;)
