What module are you using for interfacing python to gnuplot? I was
using gnuplot.py (http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net) package and it
was pretty easy to plot variable number of datasets on a single plot
with or without multiplot (however more than seven datasets per plot
looks ugly imho). In this case all you have to do is to create a
proper string with commands and pass it to gnuplot.
