Spark Charts

MX Charts are very flexible and use composition much like the Spark architecture. I don’t know if/when we’ll create Charts on the Spark base classes. I decided to see how far I could get by putting a bunch of DataGroups and a custom collection and layout into play.
Usual caveats apply. There are bugs, missing features, etc. But it might be a starting point if you need to throw some charts on the screen on top of the Spark.
