Can you be a bit more explicit, i.e. give examples ?

Personally I think that this is one of the big strengths
of scipy.xplt. For example, when debugging
I use a lot
from IPython.Shell import IPythonShellEmbed
ipshell = IPythonShellEmbed()
The ipshell() can come at any point of your code
and all variables are available.
So a quick
often allows to find bugs much more quickly
than anything else.

There is a patch on sourceforge for gnuplot which allows
for bitmap images (ie. matrices). I once tried it out and it is very nice.
It might take a little time until this gets integrated
as the gnuplot team seems to be a bit busy with
after release issues.
If you really want to go for large matrices have a look
