[Matplotlib-users] Simplifying plots (reducing data points)?

I produced a line plot as:
ax.plot (x, y, '.')
and saved as pdf.

Both x and y were large vectors, resulting in a large pdf, and when
incorporated into a LaTeX document, the resulting pdf takes a long time to

Other than my manually decimating the vectors:
ax.plot (x[::100], y[::100], '.')

Is there some way within mpl to simplify plots?  Or perhaps post-processing
the pdf?
