Thanks all for the libs and tips :-)

@Martin: I will have a look at Qt-graph, I think it is best to keep
close to our core libs. But not sure if it will soon be available in
repo's/distro's including the python bindings.

Besides this I'm doing this as part of a larger QGIS 2.x plugin, so will
eventually probably have to use both ways.
