I just spotted this on the Daily Python-URL:


  matplotlib is a pure python plotting library designed to bring 
publication quality plotting to python with a syntax familiar to matlab 
users. A lot progress towards this goal has been made since the first 
release of matplotlib (see goals), the library does produce high quality 
2D plots. All of the plotting commands can be accessed either via a 
functional interface familiar to matlab users or an object oriented 
interface familiar to python users, and several high resolution output 
formats are supported

This looks like it could be a valuable tool for promoting Python in 
higher education.
