I've been wanting to throw together some non-R code to make basic
slopegraphs for quite some time. Python seems to be a bit
more accessible to folks, so it seemed like the logical choice, 
especially given how spiffy the Cairo framework is.

If you're not familiar with slopegraphs, this effort was designed to
produce something similar to the one found here:

http://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0003nk

Just scroll down a bit to find the graph that looks similar with the
life expectancy data (the "television" data in the "examples" 
directory).

I haven't included much outside of stock 2.7.x libraries, so all you 
should need is Cairo (http://cairographics.org/) to get the code up 
and running on any platform.
