Argh, that was badly put. By "the library" I meant Cairo. I'd call
what you've done a "Haskell binding" except you've added some
functionality beyond what the C library provides.
I thought that Cairo might have a friendly chart library that you have
provided some bindings for, ala the one for GD I pointed to earlier.
Thanks, I'll put it on the never-shrinking to do.
