At this point, I can't really volunteer to write a backend. I really
just don't have the time to work on it.
I think that octaviz and octplot would probably work for the backend.
Honestly, I think that finishing the frontend would take about another
20-30 hours for me, and I think that a backend would take another 10
hours for someone else. I could write an SVG backend, but I don't have
experience writing graphics applications, so I wouldn't want to
volunteer for anything other than that.
That said, for me to try to find 20-30 hours for the frontend and
another 10 for the backend would be very difficult right now. For
another person to volunteer to do it, if they had a relatively large
amount of free time, it could be done in two-three weeks.
