Pearu has written a module (inspired by chaco) that allows wx plotting
to be done interactively from an arbitrary python shell. When I get
some time tomorrow, I'm going to test this with the wxbackend. He has
expressed some interest in matplotlib and willingness to port his
gui_thread to pygtk as well, which would be great.
gui_thread for wxpython requires either requires a CVS version of
scipy, or the files attached in my next post.
