Well, if you are using scipy, you must at least be doing some
programming. Instead of using gplt, you could just write your data to
a .csv file and feed that to gnuplot yourself. You can then use the
full flexibility of gnuplot for formatting your output, without having
to cross your fingers that the features you need will be covered by
the gplt module. You also have your data in a readable format after
calculation but before plotting - I find such intermediate data useful
for debugging.
