The first is the raw graph produced by the SVG::TT::Graph::Bar module
from CPAN. This is a handy module but it doesn't give as much control
over appearance as I wished... But in Inkscape I tinkered with it a
good bit, and got the latter.
I made good use of the grid, paste in place, and layers for this. Took
about 20 min total.
