I didn't know that gnuplot also handles this format. The idea sounds 
great, so I will use this format and I will also call the files .csv. 
However, the temporary files are artifacts of the current gnuplot binding, 
so in a Haskell program you should not rely on particalur file names, 
their format or that temporary files are used at all. We could however add 
functions for exporting data series to a file.
