It having been established that you can't do this with -dotplot-, 
can you be more precise on what you want (and indeed why 
you want it)? 

Do you want to able to do this 

*                  ++++++
***                +++++++    
********           +++  
**                 +++++++++++++++++++
*                  ++++
                   +++ 

i.e. two or more symbols for two or more distinct 
groups 

or do you want to be able to do this

*++++++
***+++++++    
********+++  
**+++++++++++++++++++
*++++
+++ 

i.e. two or more symbols within a group?
