Graphics-related issues are user interface stuff and as such will always
be handled at the python level (= where all the interpretation of
physical data happens).

(I do, however, occasionally think about adding some debugging feature
that allows me to create an image from a sparse matrix showing where
the nonzero entries end up. But this would be only for debugging.)
