If the QPL permits redistribution (I haven't read that license in a
while), it should be ok for non-free.

If acidlab upstream uses JpGraph, then of course you have little choice;
but you might be interested to point them towards Vagrant
<http://vagrant.sourceforge.net/>, an imlib-based PHP graphing class
available under the GPL that gives very impressive-looking results.
