  It has to be Javascript.  There's no reason why we can't, eventually, 
provide a function like:
findPlot("P2")->close();  (assuming that "close()" was a valid plot function)

  But we won't ship anything like that in 1.2.  Each and every command, 
method, object or other element we provide in a release version is something 
we're stuck with forever, so they have to be carefully considered.  However, 
adding non-DOMish things is a big mistake IMHO.  We could make things that 
make DOM-style behavior quicker and easier to work with, but I really don't 
support changing the scripting paradigm.
