You could modify the orcallator.cfg file to do this and put all
the Ethernet plots in one plot.  One reason for separating them
out was the order of magnitude difference in bandwidth the different
Ethernet devices support.

You could get all the regular expressions for the 10, 100, and 1000
MBit cards in orcallator.cfg and create a single plot for that.
You may want to use a log scale for that one though.
