Well... Simile is a great tool (I have used it myself) but I am not sure it is actively used and developed further. AFAIK, Zepheira took it over from MIT when the original author finished his PhD, but I have not heard any serious usage since:-(

I would be happy to be proven otherwise!

We were wondering (and neither of us knew) whether D3 has or not some extra requirements on the type of data they use, the way they convert the CSV data in whatever format they use internally (I think it is JSON). I realize this is not the usual use case, but we were wondering whether this would be a very special but nevertheless useful use case.
