An interesting result, following more investigation: when 
scipy.gplt.output(filename,'png color') is called, no file is written. 
However, when the second argument is changed to simply 'png', the file 
is written, and in color! No idea why this works -- perhaps someone 
with more gnuplot experience can shed light on it.
