I really recommend that those interested in all these issues have a look at
matplotlib.  All of this has been dealt with there already, a long time ago, in
detail.  The solutions may not be perfect, but they do work for a fairly wide
range of uses, including the interactive case.

There may be a good reason why mpl's approach is insufficient, but I think that
the discussion here would be more productive if that were stated precisely and
explicitly.  Up to this point, all the requirements I've been able to
understand clearly  work just fine with ipython/mpl (though I may well have
missed the key issue, I'm sure).
