would it be possible to achieve this type of layering using multiple overlaid (sub) plots?
If so, how would I go about this?
do you know of any way I might be able to create a custom ‘hack’ into the imshow code (within the
matplotlib core) ???

Im trying to create a precipitation contour plot using imshow() and
Id like to draw the imshow() plot so that it overlays the filled

unfortunately, it appears that imshow()'s graphics are always drawn
before everything else, so its ‘zorder’ argument is useless with
the imshow() output is always at the bottom layer, with everthing else
being overlaid on it & covering it up.
is there a work-around for this, so that I can layer imshow()'s output
between my calls to ‘basemap.fillcontinents()’ and
I don’t think this is possible - zorder doesn’t work with images. You
can use transparency though.
