Thanks Jason.  Also watched the reinteract demo.  Made me want
to play with matplotlib more too -- not sure how much it's the plots
that grabbed me, versus the "go back in time" way of re-editing, vs.
"copying down" as in IDLE, pyShell set.

My focus is Unicode these days -- just finished an I Ching demo
in Python 3, tosses coins, prints in Chinese (plus the hexagrams
themselves are in the Unicode code space).

Still not sure about how print( ) works, e.g. two hexagrams in
a tuple prints with unicodes spelled out, whereas printing
each hexagram individually as in tuple[0], tuple[1], prints
the correct glyph (horizontal and broken lines).
