[AstroPy] DISLIN

I did try it a few years back. I found it a bit clumsy to use and 
subject to
crashing (not that it hasn't improved or that it wasn't my problem). 
There were
a few issues we had with using it (such as the difficulty of embedding 
it within
other GUI's) and the fact that it was not open source. I forget how 
well it
supported images, that may have been another issue as well. I don't 
know how
much that has changed.

But it makes me ask the obvious question. What keeps you from using 
matplotlib?
I know it doesn't have all the plot types (e.g., contour, surface plots 
and
pie charts) but these will be added eventually (contour very soon). Any 
other
reasons?

Thanks, Perry
