I also suggested having more general purpose graphing/plotting/charting API
available in kdelibs.  My personal to-do list has this entry:
   + Move KPlotWidget from kdeedu/libkdeedu/kdeeduplot to kdelibs.
     See the "Plotter widget needed" thread in KDE/DEVEL folder.

How about creating a new kdegraphicslibs module?
