that sounds interesting! can you post a .png what it looks like?  maybe 
this or gunplot should become a standard output syntax in cm.   On a 
related note, a student of mine has written a nice lisp -> Music XML 
package. xml expressions are output to files and then input into Finale 
via some shareware plugin, along the lines of what IRCAM does. His 
orchestral scores look quite nice.

xfig is also available on OSX via Fink, i think.
