thanks all for comments. I will try BarryN implementation of Dr. Gunther
and see how it goes. The goal will be to integrate at some point with
rrd_graph ... but most likely I need to read the core for awhile.

yes, that was as well my idea. Im still stuck currently on some
work but mainly these are the lines, Im thinking:
- API: use Cairo or OpenGL ? Cairo is a 2D libary AFAIK. So if I
would need as well for future 3D primitives OpenGL comes handy.
... Any comments on this ? How can we integrate then rrd_graph with
needed opengl bits - could we make this a ./configure option during
the config stage ?
- at some point RRD would need to go further and have better 3D
support. Whats the plan here and what API would be a better fit for
- plan 1: develop independently of rrd_graph and see how it goes
- plan 2: develop hand in hand with rrd_graph

I will see first plan 1 and estimate a bit the work. I simple need to think what API to use and how to get started.
