OK. I would like to change my answer.
I was just installing MPL on a student's new MacBook. He had
installed Python 2.5 (only), and we tried to get the svn version of
MPL working after a successful install of numpy. MPL segfaulted.
Then we installed python 2.4.3, and the numpy and mpl packages
available from macpython. These worked -- and also fixed the mpl
that was installed in python 2.5!
I didn't have time to dig around to see what was actually changed,
but I thought this was strange, and interesting enough to report,
