You can plot people against statuses on the reporting page, which is 
pretty close to the old function. Basically, it went away because it was 
horrible, old, crufty, non-localisable, unmaintainable code, and there 
was a near-equivalent replacement in the much more functional new 
reporting system.

You are the first person to notice it's disappearance after two years, 
so I doubt it's much missed :-)
