As for BLT, there is Pmw.Blt, the original is written in Tcl.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/blt/
http://pmw.sourceforge.net/doc/Blt.html
http://heim.ifi.uio.no/~hpl/Pmw.Blt/doc/

Maybe Tcl/Pmw has less problems on different platforms, but isn't pure
python either; moreover I'm not sure what graph types are supported.
