Hi there

I just came across scipy and really like it - now seriously considering 
moving to python from matlab. You've done a great job. I'm interested 
though in a couple of things regarding development:

a) is anyone out there working on a port for Mac Os X? That would be the 
best! Matlab no longer support macs so lots of users are looking for 
alternative scripting languages. And because of the freeBSD kernel of osX 
many programmers are starting to use macs (you wouldnt believe me if I told 
you 2 years ago!)

b) how is the development of plt coming on? What sort of time do you expect 
it to take to give that the functionality of gnuplot? The thing I use lots 
that doesnt exist is a proper surface plot (not mesh).

Of course its very easy to write a wish list when I'm not doing the 
development... ;) Thanks again for your work so far!
