Well, there is a simple example in weave/examples/vtk_example.py.  That 
example should be fairly informative. :)

Unfortunately, testing this requires the use of nasty external 
resources.  In particular it requires that VTK be installed and that 
weave be told where to find the VTK headers and libraries.  In any case, 
I modified the paths suitably in the example corresponding to my 
system's VTK setup and it seems to work fine -- note that I'm using 
version 0.6.0 that ships with Ubuntu rather than SVN.

I hope this helps.
