  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: 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.
