No, unless you're willing to get down to modifying the sources that
is. For colours, we've already unified most if it, in the upcoming
3.7.1. For the point symbols, that's a whole lot more complicated,
because there is not really a big enough set of point symbols common
to all the drivers, to begin with.

That's not really the problem... the outptut will be slightly
different, sure, but you will 'be able to use the same command file'
in any gnuplot implementation. That's about the most fundamental
design decision that ever went into gnuplot, and separates it from
other, similar programs: no matter what else happens, you can always
'save' a plot in one gnuplot session, and 'load' it to another of the
same version level, but on a totally different platform and expect
sensible output, within the limits of what the terminals allow us to

For that, it's probably easier to use an eps previewer (ghostscript
with gsview) and fine-tune the eps plot directly.
Even if all the snow were burnt, ashes would remain.
