There is a lot of interest in this -- at least three of the developers
besides me have expressed interest in working on this, so hopefully we
can get something going. Maybe sometime this summer...

The plotting part for a 2D hist would be fairly easy (as a pcolor or
image). Is there no Nd histogram function in scipy or numarray?
