The best solution would be to have a simple configuration option, allowing to either send graphics to a "live" external window, or to have them automatically in line. There is some advantage also in in line graphs, they allow keeping a well organized log of the computations. And for simple computations many of us mix the advantages of the two approaches by using in line graphs and simply editing and resubmitting the graphics command. This is the workflow one is accustomed to when using for instance Mathematica notebooks.

A plot in an external gnuplot window is a live object. You can interact with it by your mouse and change it in various ways. After you are completely satisfied, you can export it from gnuplot as an .eps file. Then it is trivial to insert in into a TeXmacs document.

A plot inside TeXmacs is a dead object. You cannot interact with it. Therefore, I think that having a live plot in an externa gnuplot window is much better.

I don't understand why you need gimp. The prefered graphics format for importing into TeXmacs is eps. gnuplot is perfectly able to produce it, without any extra convertion programs.
