	Yeah, I understand that. And it'd probably be more difficult
to set up a new chartserver than it is to get a working GD
installation. (Although, of course, with just an option to pick what
chartserver Bugzilla would use, that would then again make things easy.)

	I actually have a more pressing technical concern of people who
have no access outside the firewall whatsoever to unauthorized
locations, which is a very common situation to use Bugzilla in. Of
course, it's usually the *server* that doesn't have access, not the
client, so that would be less of a problem. And people with no access
to Google on port 80...that'd be pretty sad. So perhaps it's not so

	The request limit could also be problematic, but honestly, it
would only be a massive installation that would generate more than
50,000 charts per day. I can't imagine even
generating that many charts per day.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
