Thank you very much, Greg and Ramnath, for the pointers!  I'll explore more.

There are plugins for rCharts that help you create custom charts.

Here is a scatterplot matrix example


It doesn't support brushing, but I think it won't be hard adding that behavior if you contact its author.

Hope this helps.
