Yes, essentially I want this command to allow the following graphing
command's Graph to be exported to a file in the logfile directory.  I
want it to be useable both in command line or dofile mode and simple
to add to existing dofiles having graphical output.  Currently we are
actually implementing Nick's looping for sequential naming of some
files but I wanted a more general case.  I intend gr2log to have two
arguments: Large to output a large version of the graph (graph
export's default size is dependent on the graph window size) and
Saving() to override the default sequential naming.

Ah, I mistakenly thought you were talking about wrapping a single
command.  If instead you want to do something prior (and/or
subsequent) to *any* possible graph command, then the prefix approach
is indeed appropriate.
