Completely understandable. I am actually writing the graphing module as
a standalone API module and the statistics module is calling upon that.
I'm also bundling the library with the module so no installation is
necessary. While it is somewhat of a misuse of the "PEAR library"
concept, I find that too many people aren't in control of the systems
environment enough to assume they can install and configure PEAR
themselves. I hate code duplication as much as the next guy but
sometimes it is the lesser of 2 evils.

If you are totally unable to find a "proper maintainer" I might be able
to provide upgrade assistance but it depends on my work schedule over
the next month or two. Thanks for the response.
