I love charts and I love categories - so I thought it would be the perfect plugin for me. However, if you have enough categories to want to visualize them, you probably have more than one parent category and a bunch of sub-categories under each. Unfortunately, the plugin doesn't allow to view the pie for each parent category and quickly becomes useless. For example, if I have music and countries categories (for music from different countries) on my site and I have "jazz, rock, classical" under music and "US, Australia, Ireland" under countries, then when I look at the chart I see "Jazz, US, Australia, Classical, Rock, Ireland" all mixed up, which makes the visualization totally useless.
