I'm glad you think so! We think so. ;-)

We do plan to add the display of axes and major ellipses as well as a
probability-level-to-scaling-factor calculator as well as session
support. What we've released is functional/useful but not what we
consider complete at this point. I'm going to open a feature-request
ticket in our Trac database for axes/ellipses with you and Thomas
Mitterfellner (who also requested these) as recipients, so you will
get mail when it gets implemented. My guess is it will probably take
a month or so for me to have the time to implement it.
