I have committed an initial implementation of the AggPas-based drawing
backend for TAChart. To avoid TAChart -> AggPas dependency, I did not add
TADrawerAggPas unit to the package, which is of course suboptimal.
See components/tachart/demo/aggpas for an example.

So, how to proceed? Should I create TAChartAggPasPkg?
