Request: Maintain burn-down chart slope when adding new tasks

I'm not sure if I'm missing some configuration setting in the admin menus, but here it goes.

Fogbugz as of now adds a bump in the middle of a burn-down chart if a task is added there. However, this goes is detrimental to one of the best features of burn-down charts: the graphic representation of speed (the slope).

I've tried Acunote and it seems to add more vertical space when another task is added ("pushing the graph up").

Also, it would be nice if we could see the chart of the whole project (past, resolved or closed, task,s as well).

I can see where that would be useful, but how would that impact the historical data. If you bump the whole chart up, then doesn't it look like you had always planned on doing the newly added task?  Doesn't that obscure what could be valuable information?

I've opened a feature request to think about this.

You might want to repost this with screen shots on to broaden the discussion.

Yes, it probably hides some information, but the converse is true, as well. Without the whole graph then you can't grok the speed of the project at a glance.

Not that the current graph is bad, I like it. I would like to have both options (because as of now, I'll probably have to use both fogbugz and acunote).

I have created a question on fogbugz.stackexchange
