I see lots of colors, tiny graphs, and bunches of numbers.  Example:
There are 15 normal bugs with a weight of 38.668 and an impact of
3.7.  Is that supposed to mean something? <wink>

It looks a little over-engineered to me.

I was imagining the answer would be something more like: Count number
of bugs marked as "closed" and "fixed" over some time interval.
