Hi Jon, this is an ultra specialized IDL script. While I am sure it 
could be part of an astro dedicated extension to matplotlib, I would not 
be surprised that matplotlib does not deliver anything like that. Of 
course this is the right place to ask, as maybe someone has already 
implemented it for her/his own use. Could you provide a specific figure 
as an example of what you would like to achieve?
