Is it possible to use pyFoamPlotWatcher to create plots (say, of the residuals) remotely on a cluster without X11 forwarding?

When I try, I get the following error messages.

gnuplot: unable to open display ''
gnuplot: X11 aborted.
Is there a way to create a bitmap image of a plot, without rendering it first to the screen?
