I am using Allin's script as well, for a cross-section model and a
discrete variable with three categories. I also vote for extending the
"XY with factor separation" plot to allow for more categories, of course
when our dear developers have time and are bored (no high priority).
OK, now in CVS and snapshots you can use any discrete variable,
not just a 0/1 dummy, with gnuplot and the --dummy option.
In the same line of business I've added a --factorized option for
the boxplot command, and enhanced the GUI boxplot options (e.g.,
on right-clicking a variable and selecting Boxplot).
