This is great to hear and much appreciated! I had tried so many times
(with several versions of matplotlib) get it running on OS X and always
ended in frustration.
Incidentally, I did recently manage to get it working (but only by
installing the huge Scisoft binary bundle:
http://www.stecf.org/macosxscisoft/) which finally got matplotlib up and
running. After using now for a few weeks, I've been hugely impressed
with the quality of the plots and its ease of use -- definitely worth
all the trouble to get it installed.
