To generate jpg's and png's (maybe gif's):

binding for plotutils:
http://biggles.sourceforge.net/libplot/

binding for gnuplot:
http://gnuplot-py.sourceforge.net/

gdchart has a python binding (which I can't bring up right now).  Here
is gdchart's own page.

Also, some people use "R" for fancy charts, and R has a python binding:
