P.S. Chris: I've been meaning to ask you. Regarding my instructions for building matplotlib: <http://www.astro.washington.edu/rowen/BuildingMatplotlibForMac.html>
is it still necessary to fuss with WX_CONFIG environment variable or is that no longer needed for modern versions of wxPython and matplotlib?

yup -- as of wxPython2.8 -- we can do MPL in pure python. It will work with older version with, perhaps, a little less performance.

It's nice to get rid of that binary compatibility issue.
