Isn't that what PIDDLE is for? With the QuickDraw backend, it
would seem to be right for your purposes on a Mac. "This backend
generates MacOS QuickDraw graphics within a window of the Mac
Python IDE", says the blurb (can't check -- I have no Mac!), and
it says that nothing extra besides MacPython is needed with Python

No interactivity with PIDDLE+QuickDraw, I think. If you need to
do 2 things (plot AND interact) you may have to use 2 packages...
