If you want to plot stuff, the gnuplot-py module is very easy
to use.  http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuplot-py/

The one feature that I'd really like to add is the ability to
plot a python function object.  Currently you can plot a
function specified by a string (e.g. "sin(x) * sin(x)**2"), or
a sequence of data points.  It would be nice to be able to pass
an actual function.
