Awesome. The direction you are pushing this is great. I'd definitely
love to see this in the next release.

Really nice. My only suggestion would be to combine the examples and
outputs together in the Cookbook. One of the best ways to learn plotting
and drawing packages is by looking through examples, finding one that
most closely matches what you want, and then iterating until you get at
what you need.
