Well, I think the wording "package" is quite familiar for Python
users. However, looking at other python packages, the wording used is
more often "library". So, I keep your proposition.

Yes, it is. pychart is more complete but its rendering is more

For the moment, this is a complete list. In the SVN version, there is an

Description: simple chart-drawing library

lightweight and attractive. It can't draw every kind of chart
imaginable but it does draw the commonest ones prettily.
Thanks for your feedback !
