Thank you Steven.
Option replace has an inconsistency of its own:

   sysuse auto
   scatter l w, name("Graph") mc(red)
   scatter l w
   graph display Graph

Here the second command overrides the graph saved in the first command
without an option -replace-.
Nothing deadly, but can happen, because the reserved name for the
default graph "Graph" is nothing extraordinary like "_ST0001XYZ". Does
the manual describe "Graph" as the such name?

Anyways, just wish graph clear _all was part of the official clear.

Best regards,
   Sergiy Radyakin
