Hi Alex,

Have you tried using knitr for python? Attached is a simple example
and the output created. For more info, see
http://yihui.name/knitr/demo/engines/ . graphics and everything else
should also work, although you might need to add custom hooks (not as
hard as it sounds).

This might not be ideal because you have to have R installed (knitr is
still itself written in R). But I would be curious in your thoughts.
