Hey Leo, I'm going to reply with an email I sent in reply to someone 
else with the same question a while ago:

Here's the [Github 
issue](https://github.com/sheriferson/Visualize.mmBundle/issues/6) I 
referenced that has more from Benny on the issue, and research from me 
on possible solutions.

I'll wait for Benny to weigh in here. If he has plans to work on 
anything we discussed in that issue, I'm happy to do what I can. 
Otherwise, maybe it's best for him to remove it from the list of plugins 
so users don't waste their time trying to get it to work.
