This proposed behavior really has nothing to do with plotting. It
would be some sort of "real-only" mode, where for example sqrt(-1),
asin(2), etc. would give an error. Though this could be done in
principle, it would require changes to large parts of Maxima. For
example, (sqrt(x))^2 and sin(asin(x)) could not simplify to x.
