I think being able to say lable your points with a third column of
data would be cool (which I am sure is already do-able), and also to
be able to hover over a point and find out the value.  On a huge
wishlist that I don't have a clue how to implement- a zoom window
function close to kaliedagraphs would make me very happy.

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
