[Matplotlib-devel] Creating an interactive figure from the OO interface

Hi all,

(resending this since I originally sent it to the old sourceforge list,
sorry if this double-posts)

I see in the matplotlib 1.5 release notes that figures created via the OO
interface can now be interactively updated.

Does this mean it's now possible to manually create a figure manager using
an interactive backend, create a plot using the figure manager and then
call the show() method on the figure manager to display the plot in an
interactive window, all without (possibly indirectly) importing pyplot? If
not, should I just give up and do this via pyplot? I'd like to avoid
importing pyplot if possible to avoid crashes on headless sessions.

Thanks for your help or advice,
