I often have Electromagnetic surface current data which I use MATLAB's trisurf function to plot. Since the surfaces are 3-dimensional I need a trisurf plotting tool which lets me specify the color of each triangle/vertex. MATLAB's trisurf function allows me to do that by passing it an array of colors (http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/trisurf.html).

Matplotlib's plot_trisurf from mplot3d only seems to allow me to specify one constant color for the entire trisurf plot or to color the triangles according to the z-coordinates. Am I missing something about how to use plot_trisurf or is this a functionality not yet implemented in matplotlib?
