NM -- I figured out the (embarrassingly, ridiculously easy) solution
on my own.  Here it is, in case anybody wants it...

import Numeric; N = Numeric
from Scientific.Statistics.Histogram import Histogram

class ExtendedHistogram(Histogram):
  def __init__(self, data, nbins, range=None):
    Histogram.__init__(self, data, nbins, range)
    self._setup(data, nbins, range)

  def removeData(self, data):
    Remove the values in |data| (a sequence of numbers) from the
    originally supplied data. Note that this does not affect the
    default range of the histogram, which is fixed when the
    histogram is created.
    n = (len(data)+999)/1000
    for i in range(n):

  def _removeData(self, data):
    data = N.array(data, N.Float)
    data = N.repeat(data, N.logical_and(N.less_equal(data, self.max), 
                                     N.greater_equal(data, self.min)))
    data = N.floor((data - self.min)/self.bin_width).astype(N.Int)
    nbins = self.array.shape[0]
    histo = N.add.reduce(N.equal(N.arange(nbins)[:,N.NewAxis],
                                                          data), -1)
    histo[-1] = histo[-1] + N.add.reduce(N.equal(nbins, data))
    # this next line is the only change... changed the "+" to a "-"
    self.array[:, 1] =  self.array[:, 1] - histo
