Good! Maybe you should post the babel solution for future reference.
Here is an org-plot solution for future reference: there is a script
option that allows you to use an arbitrary gnuplot script.  The org
manual ( describes
it very well:

| script If you want total control, you can specify a script file (place
|        the file name between double-quotes) which will be used to
|        plot. Before plotting, every instance of $datafile in the
|        specified script will be replaced with the path to the generated
|        data file. Note: even if you set this option, you may still want
|        to specify the plot type, as that can impact the content of the
|        data file.
