ds9 is not a Python module, it's a stand-alone program that you run from 
Unix.  However, there is an interface for displaying images to it, and 
the Python module numdisplay uses that interface.  The advantage of ds9 
is that it is so powerful.  imshow in matplotlib is pretty good, though, 
and you may want to use matplotlib anyway for plotting.
