Thank you for the reply.

It looks like matplotlib will handle my immediate plotting from 
Python needs.  

The 'goals' page on the matplotlib web site state
that there has been some 'proof-of-concept' work completed on
3-d visualization.  Any estimate on when there might be some
3-d plotting support?
