The problem with the old plugin was that it didn't let the user see the
relationship between relevant statistics. With the growing number of
statistics available,  it simply generated too many graphs which made it
difficult to see the bigger picture. The current implementation combines
related graphs and still includes all information if the user wants it (ie:
9 or so aspects aren't linked by default). 

The previous plugin wasn't horribly big and it would've been more work to
re-factor it the way we wanted it. It simply didn't strike me that it would
be an issue replacing it. Or that I had to discuss it with you.
