jftr . It is possible to do such thing using TracGViz>=1.4.1 , to be
released soon . So I guess eventually we'll add some samples
illustrating how to get similar things done with that plugin too , and
I'll let you know .

If you offer XML-RPC handlers for that then TracGViz will be able to
extract data from there . Indeed , nowadays built-in TracGViz data
sources are designed on top of XmlRpcPlugin's (and ...) RPC handlers
