  PyScript is a python module for producing high quality postscript 
  graphics. Rather than use a GUI to draw a picture, the picture is 
  programmed using python and the PyScript objects.
  Some of the key features are:
      * All scripting is done in python, which is a high level, easy to 
        learn, well developed scripting language.
      * All the objects can be translated, scaled, rotated, ... in fact
        any affine transformation.
      * Plain text is automatically kerned.
      * You can place arbitrary LaTeX expressions on your figures.
      * You can create your own figure objects, and develop a library of 
        figure primitives.
      * Output is publication quality.
