OBTW, one way to handle it if sizes are very large other than by keeping
all inverses simultaneously would be to add points to each plot/line
sequentially somewhat like if were doing an animation.

There are examples in enhanced graphics on animation that illustrate the
idea but basically you plot the first x,y points individually to start
the lines then augment the data vector w/ each additional set as you
compute the new inverse.
