Hi all,

Does any know if there exists a python/matplotlib equivalent for the IDL
Astronomy Library routine named lineid_plot?  What it does is plot a
spectrum with line list identifications annotated on it at the top of
the plot. I searched and couldn't find anything like it.  It does nice
things like making multiple line segments to separate the line ids for
cases where the lines are too close together.
