Gary,

One other request for you to entertain.  When you get into the Python
code (I can help with this, if you need it) think about organizing it
such  that you can use multiple output mechanisms.  For example, default
it to use dot as you have been talking about but allow for the use of
tikz as Erik Fraga mentioned in August.  This would imply converting to
some intermediate representation from the table form and then passing
that data to a dynamically selected back-end output engine.

I suggest tikz as an alternative since it can make such beautiful
graphs.

I haven't made use of babel yet so I don't know all its ins and outs
but I expect that there are ways of passing additional information to
the language doing the heavy lifting so we could add various output
modules...

Mark
