Yes, but in Bill Rising's Ado mode I can run a command like this

graph twoway ///
  || scatter this that /// 
     , with options here and there
  || lowess this that ///
     , even some more options
  || if exp ///
  , and finally the tw-options

directly by just putting the cursor on the command and hit M-Return.
However this works only in Windows and Mac. As a Linux-User I would love
to have this too.
