questions on integrating pylab plot into wx gui..

I have great working matplotlib pylab code that fires
off a new plot when asked to.

Now we want to embed/add this code into an existing
wx gui....Is it possible to make the pylab code
embed the plot into an existing gui window rather than creating
a //new// plot window/widget?

Also, a colleague says wx doesn't seem to play nice
with pylab module. Is pylab somehow slower or not
the best fit with wx?? He says 'Figure()' code seems
better with wx. Any advice/comments greatly appreciated.
