I think that a library to create plots is in general very useful, and I
did not find any convenient solution last time I needed this. Plotting
to SVG is also very good idea. It means that the library will be
immediately useful to many GUI and non-GUI application, without requiring
binding to existing GUI toolkits to be written.

And the examples look very nice, too!
