So one can put the code emanating from the recording verbatim into a do-file and Stata complies with it? I was discouraged to do that by the line in the .grec files that says "// Edit only if you know what you are doing." Sounded like mortal danger...

Thanks to Scott and Martin for responding. Martin's solution to
look at graph editor pointed me in the right direction. Looking
at the recorded changes reminded me that one can manipulate 
graphs directly and gave me the right hints on how to do so.
Below is the graph I was after:

*------------------- begin example --------------------
sysuse auto, clear
recode rep78 1/2=3
egen byvar = group(foreign rep78)
label define byvar 1 "Average" 2 "Good" 3 "Excelent" ///
                   4 " " 5 " " 6 " "
label value byvar byvar
scatter price mpg ,                                  ///
    by(byvar,                                        ///
    r2title(Car type, orientation(rvertical))        ///
    t1title(Repair Record 1978, size(medsmall)))     ///
    name(col, replace) 

.col.plotregion1.r1title[3]._set_orientation rvertical
.col.plotregion1.r1title[3].text = {}
.col.plotregion1.r1title[3].text.Arrpush Domestic

.col.plotregion1.r1title[6].text = {}
.col.plotregion1.r1title[6].text.Arrpush Foreign
