Calc: is it possible to create variants of piecharts such as polar area diagrams?

I couldnt find any customization option in the respective chart property dialogues. I would like to have piecharts vary a little more than the standard ones, there are some interesting ones, like polar, spie etc.
Have a look at Pie chart - Wikipedia


Currently, the only pie chart sub-types that are supported are: exploded pie, ring[1], exploded ring[1], and 3D renderings of these. The polar area, spie, and sunburst (multi-level ring) sub-types are not supported. It may be possible to draft a chart of these types using the LibreLogo language, using a conversion of the example in R provided on this Wikimedia spie chart page.

There does not currently appear to be any open enhancement request relating to these unsupported pie chart sub-types. Please file an enhancement bug and provide as much information about this new feature as possible. Don’t forget to mark your bug as an ‘enhancement’. The QA team will be happy to help you triage your feature request in the bugtracker. Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format “fdo#123456”. Thanks.

[1] Technically a ring chart is a separate type (rather than sub-type) in both ISO/IEC 26300 (ODF) and ISO/IEC 29500:2012 (OOXML). ODF uses the chart:ring value in the chart:class attribute, while OOXML refers to this type of chart as “doughnut”.
