@Bruce, David
Do you have  a particular site that is one-line and 
available to the gereral public?
I am intending something similar.

Although it is not specially topic of this list, I am particulary interested in
how you generate the matplotlib graphics on the fly.
To you store them in a temporary directory or do create 
the files somehow on the fly?

Would be nice to see your implementation.
