Sounds like this could be really useful for darcs-benchmark!

Meanwhile, I just thought I should point out a potentially complementary
library called 'tabular'.  Tabular lets you generate tables in various
formats from a single representation.  So you could spit out CSV values
for barchart on the one hand and LaTeX on the other hand and somehow
stitch the two into a nice little PDF.


Right now, the formats it knows about are an ASCII art format, HTML, CSV
and LaTeX.  For darcs-benchmark, we use a custom ReStructredText
renderer.  Maybe in the future, a Pandoc renderer would be useful.

Now row/column spans, yet, unfortunately :-(
