I'll give mayavi/mlab a try, I think there was a note to the

There is still work going on to improve matplotlib 3d plotting functionality. You can see matplotlib gallery or check-out the latest trunk of matplotlib and experiment with the 3d examples.

So much to learn, so little time :-)

Isn't that nice? Lifelong learning? Why are complaining? Are you not a scientist or raising a kid something :)
