Yes, there are a lot of "details" to be improved in the rendering.  It's
good to enumerate them like you did because it helps define a task list.
You might also want to use the bug tracker BTW, to make sure we don't
forget about these.  :-)

Regarding pie charts, the problems mostly come from Ploticus (which
produces the PNGs used in the HTML output) and Lout (which is used in
the PDF output).  We need to find a workarounds using these tools.

There are many things in there that are prospective, e.g., ideas to
improve the design that would not necessarily be user-visible.  Not that
much to worry about I think.  ;-)

Of course I'm interested in helping with bug fixing.  So please do
report bugs and I'll do my best to fix them if you don't come up with a
patch right away!
