The widget is an extension of the Tk::Canvas widget that will plot
Tk::LineGraphDataset objects as lines onto a 2D graph. The module
includes the following features:

* Plots multiple datasets.
* Plots are zoomable.
* Axes can be automatically scaled or set by the code.
* Optional second y-axis (Y1).
* Axes can be linear or logarithmic.

the drop down menus used to configure the graph in the original.
