Do you mean two different scales? For example, plotting [pirates vs
time] and [pirates vs average global temperature], with keys on the
top corner indicating which is what?
And the mere mention of keys makes me realized that I've overlooked
them until now. I could have options to produce a key in the same
image file or in a different image file, control control where on the
graph it goes, and whether or not the graph auto-scales in order to
fit the key on it nicely. That last one sounds like a pain, so it'll
be far down the features list. I'll have to spend a good chunk of time
today editing the wiki to put in all of the suggestions you've given
me, and all of the changes your suggestions have inspired!
