This is unfortunate (especially after your very good looking initial patch),
but thanks for the followup! :)

Not really.  Guppi was known "dead", and Gnumeric was already doing graphing.
Since we already share dependencies, &c, it seemed low-impact to use goffice,
which was known to work (having proved itself in gnumeric) and would easily
slot into a gtk environment…

Care to suggest an alternative?  One that I've seen before is Grace¹, but I
didn't really look into it too deeply.
