-- Displays a sliding average of questions, answers, and up/down votes per day
-- on a site. 
--
-- Parameters:
--
--    Days        Number of days to look back (relative to data dump date).
--    VScale      Divide vote counts by this number (for graph scaling).
--    WindowSize  Number of days (in addition to current) to include in
--                sliding average window (6 is a week, because 6+current = 7).
