I don't want to start a naming bikeshed so if it is already too late
to consider renaming, just dismiss these comments:
The first thing I thought of when I read the name of the plugin is
that it did graph rendering, like OGDF QML, and I was in desperate
need for such a library a couple of months ago. I think graph is
confusing for a couple of reasons:
* There is already a concept of graphs associated to QML, as in QML
Graph Scene (which is apparently the most common result I get from
searching "QML Graph")
* In KDE, Rocs deals with Graphs and KmPlot deals with these kinds of graphs.
* There is a Qt Charts thing that does something similar.
So I would consider renaming this to something with plot/chart.
