Hi Samuel,

I don't really see how one line with legend could upset anybody. But I might
be wrong.

I do agree that removing such line can be difficult in case of using .png or
.pdf (probably two most popular formats). It would be easy in xfig but nowadays
almost nobody knows what .xfig format is.

So my suggestion would be following one:
1)Generate title/legend line by default
2)Add new switch to disable it
--notitle
or
--nolegend

I do believe that such solution would make everybody happy. What's your
opinion?

Thanks!
Jirka
