I wholeheartedly agree... I use ifgraph on another box to deal with the 
SNMP data and still like to look at the SVG graphs occasionally. I'd say 
this combination is one of m0n0's killer features personally - lots of 
similar products only give you one or the other (realtime/historical).

SVG will be adopted by more browsers in the future and, unless it's 
somehow causing problems with the future development of m0n0, I think 
you should stick with it.
