Cool project, I really missed such a component a while back (I actually wrote 
my own back then, which was less nice than yours). The code looks sane too 
from a quick look, so I'm all for moving it to extragear (although I'm not 
exactly an expert for sane code).

It doesn't seem to be designed for lots of data (since each point is an 
object, etc.), which is understandable; but eventually it would be a nice 
feature to add API designed towards such data in the future?

I assume you're talking about the "usual" 3D charts, such as 3D-looking pie 
charts and bar graphs? For drawing those, I would not use any kind of 3D API 
at all. Just drawing some rectangles and ellipses clipping each other will be 
way easier for that purpose, which is very easy even with QtQuick 1. (Apart 
from that, those 3D effects are bad for a chart's readability anyways ;)
