3 axes plots


The more I am using matplotlib, the more I like it. But using it more means I more often hit the limits of the code, so I was wondering if there is any plan for a routine to plot data points w.r.t 3 axes (so a perspective scatter plot with x,y,z, data and a viewing angle). Of course another (maybe more difficult) goal would be to be able to draw surfaces, but already a simple scatter plot in 3D would help tremendously there (I realize the concept of "axis" has then to be revised, but well I have no idea how much effort this is).

(if there is no - coming - plan for this, is there any way around it?)
Please let me know, and congrats for the work already achieved!
