Chaco is under very active development, but I do believe it is ready  
to be used by end users, especially if they don't mind giving much- 
needed feedback on what docs and additional examples would be most  
helpful. :)  We are using chaco for a lot of internal projects and it  
works quite well.  What sorts of plots and visualizations were you  
hoping to put together?

(Note that by "chaco" I am referring to chaco2; the original is  
pretty much in maintenance-only mode right now.)
