Sankey Diagrams

I was reminded again yesterday of the Sankey Diagram.  Their use has been influenced by examples in Edward Tufte's graphic design books. The link points to a blog devoted to their use for representing complex data interaction of flows and representing progressive partitions of data.   Are they just expansions of the recently much reviled Pie chart?  Stephen Few seems to support Sankey use in his classic review of charting complexity.    See also Karakotsios's work on using them in Apps. I would like to see easier ways of including them in visualization.
