[GRASS-dev] numeric-numpy-scipy for graphs?

We need to create a graph/plot for at least 2 functions in the wxgrass
GUI‹profile plotting and histogramming. I did the TclTk profile module with
just standard graphic calls. However, wxPython has a very nice plot
control:PyPlot. It has lots of nice options, including ways to save the plot

BUT, it requires numeric or numarray ‹ which have been superceded by numpy
or scipy. These are as available the main python package and provide a rich
scientific computing library for Python and wxPython. It looks like these
are available for all platforms either as binary or source files. However,
it would be another dependency.

So what do you think? Should I install numpy (or scipy) and try the PyPlot
or just create these modules with simple graphics?
