It seems for some reason I failed to ever respond to this email.
(Well, I guess it was probably because I was right in the process of
moving to England, but anyway...) Sorry about that.

Off the top of my head, I am not sure why that would be. I'll have to
play around with it a bit.

Agreed. We should probably add something to the Backend class for
rendering multiple diagrams at once.
