I've looked at the source code, and it's one class, and it's heavily 
tied to JFreeChart. Wings is much more abstract in this regard. I don't 
think that it will be easy to make it renderer-agnostic.

Also, the fact that it's tied to a LGPL package is something I don't like.

The fact that you want to continue with adding many features to it makes 
me think that you will need quite a lot of freedom too.

I think you should set it up on cocoondev and chenge the license to APL 
compatible, for all the reasons I said in my email. IMHO cocoonapps is a 
dead horse ATM, and since we could move cocoon to cocoondev HW, it would 
be the same (still have decide it though).

This is *M*HO, I'm not a gatekeeper or a guardian.

But please, if someone wants to say his opinion, please take a look at 
the two codebases, and make a reasoned comparison.

Fnally, if there is going to be *a* charting package, it should be 
renderer agnostic. If not, they should have their own names (as FOP is 
not FO, itext is not called PDF).
