I had also seen that and it looks pretty slick (it is basically a 
frontend to dot, no?)

When William said Graph, I actually thought Chart/Plot rather than 
"dot".  In any case, seems like Jifty could use all three.

As for the interface, the CPAN module for graphing are a bit scattered 
in terms of API.  Also, each type of graph/chart has a lot of options.  
Thus, just calling the appropriate code and getting an image out of it 
is probably best.

On that note, how can you create a dynamic qq(<img src="$src">) tag 
along with a (temporary?) dispatcher for $src in one step?

Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by
