Here's a better example of what I'm after (it uses a tif file, but fits
is what I want or expect to use).
# fun and games
import Image, ImageDraw
im = Image.open("wagon.tif")
draw = ImageDraw.Draw(im)
draw.line((0, 0) + im.size, fill=128)
"_show_ [in the example] is pretty primitive...", in Tkinter/PIL.
The question is whether ds9 is a module that can be used within a Python
program? I really do not know, but indications are that it is not.
