Yes, there is one there by default:


By the way, Lou, once you get Tkinter working right, I think the version 
of matplotlib you got from me won't work with it. I think I've got a 
version now that does, but I don't need it at the moment, and I got 
distracted with other things. I was hoping Robert Kern would put it out 
with MacEnthon soon, but he doesn't seem to have it released yet. I've 
corresponded with him about it, and I think he's got it all set to go, 
but I don't know where he's intending to put his stuff, or when.

If anyone wants a mpkg of matplotlib that works with wx, TK, and Agg, 
let me know and I'll put one together, and give it to Bob to put on his 
site. I'm not going to do a GTK one, as it doesn't make sense. If you're 
using GTK, you're using fink or darwinports, and you should install 
matplotlib through them.
