webvis: Create graphics for the web from R.

Uses Protovis to provide web graphics for R (exposes most low-level functions). Package is still under active development and shouldn't be considered stable until version 0.1. Currently uses a web browser to process JavaScript, although future version will process JavaScript directly and return the SVG output. Also does not properly support discrete labels (e.g. with histograms) or statistical functions. See website for more details.
