An interesting challenge. I will take a look.

We were limited by the graphics library when we first rewrote prettyplot 
for EMBOSS but we now have more reliable PNG options in plplot.

Pretyplot scales the plot to fit the page, so you need extra options to 
make the page larger ... and I will make sure all titles and labels can 
be hidden.
