The problem is that you are aiming for a moving target: The amount
Stata has to offer will also (hopefully) grow over time ;)

In essence you can, but it will not quite give you what you are
looking for. You can open the graph recorder file in any text editor,
and you will see the commands used to manipulate your graph (a series
of commands all starting with a "."). In essence you are directly
manipulating a (complex) class object that was created with a -graph-
command, you are not re-issuing a modified -graph- command.
