Assuming that SciDAVis is maintained and works reasonably well,
we want to describe SciDAVis as the successor of Qtiplot.

I suggest doing so by labeling Qtiplot as "superseded by SciDAVis".

More generally, I suggest we put "superseded by B" on a free program A
when A is no longer maintained
and B is a free program developed out of A
which is better/newer than A.

Any comments or suggestions?
