Reading your questions I had the idea that it would be also
a great feature for Kst and couldn't stop me ;)


I assume this is what you are locking for. So, now you only
have to write a plugin for your data files and the current
Kst version would plot all vectors in your data against
the index without any user input.
If you wanna a different behavior you could overwrite the
default by implementing 'autoCurves' in your plugin.
