Visualizing Random Walks
This shows the use of transparent lines to visualize random walk data.
There is also a custom plugin defined which causes lines to be highlighted
when the mouse hovers over them.
Use the toolbar buttons at the bottom-right of the plot to enable zooming
and panning, and to reset the view.
