Digging more deeply into matplotlib, and incorporating code to produce
.png output files, I'm starting to get a better feel for what I need.

As my data plots are vectors, I'd be better off having the matplotlib
output saved as .ps, .eps, .pdf, or .svg. I'd prefer to use .pdf output.
What might be involved incorporating a series of .pdf plots withing

According to the PIL on-line doc, it supports both .eps and .pdf, but only
for writing. Is there no easy (or practical) way to incorporate the .pdf
vector output into my reports?
