just tried the branch, tomaz.
and reading this really cleared a lot more details for me:
    Started the work for a new profile widget that will catch them all.

    The idea of the new profile widget is that it should be something
    dynamic, easy-to-expand, future-proof ( well, kinda, since I'm
    still realying on QGraphcisView and the future is QML, but I
    plan to make it easy to port ._. ).

    - Integration with some QML Items ( mostly the Toolbar / Tooltip
    system )
    - Plugin Integration
    - The return of the Planner
    - Edit / Show dives
    - Fast.

i got an assert:
ASSERT: "last >= first" in file kernel/qabstractitemmodel.cpp, line 2413
and these are notoriously difficult to debug on win32, as i can't (or
don't know how to) backtrace.

you mentioned that profile.c has remaining cairo fragments in there,
but i can't find them also 'struct plot_info' and things like
'calculate_max_limits()' are just math, and are fine to remain in the
backend, IMHO.

i think it would be best if you ask the 'struct plot_info' questions
here, because i think IRC (and chat) is a horrible medium for
it's just chit-chat...and also linus doesn't use it and he is the one
who wrote the original profile.c and the math in there, after all.
