Long chain of connections using SankeyΒΆ

Demonstrate/test the Sankey class by producing a long chain of connections.

# Notice:
# 1. The alignment doesn't drift significantly (if at all; with 16007
#    subdiagrams there is still closure).
# 2. The first diagram is rotated 45 deg, so all other diagrams are rotated
#    accordingly.
