Tioga looks very nice for 2D plots but IMHO, asymptote could provide a
good transition for metaposters. Moreover, asymptote is a "all-in-one"
tool with 3D support and 2D plots of reasonable quality...

The discussion is now, what do you prefer: an integrated tool with a
great variety of features (even if a small amount of us are interested
by "three" or "graph" in asymptote) or a better tool but with less
features ?

It is already possible to do 3D with metapost by using featpost, m3d or
others but IMHO asymptote seems great because it integrates nativelly
this kind of features.

I have just send a mail to Andy Hammer to ask him what he thinks about
using plainTeX format instead of hardcoded latex calls...
