There have been two efforts thus far, both proof-of-concept but with
some nice results. The VTK interface Paul referred to
http://sda.iu.edu/matplot.html
and some pure python 3D work that uses matplotlib for drawing but is
slow, especially for interactive stuff
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/mpl3d.zip
The original post announcing this work is here with simple screenshot
here; this code supports simple surface, mesh and 3D scatter plots.

Recently, I learned a graduate student in South Africa in applied
mathematics would by adding 3D support to matplotlib as her Master's
thesis, so if anyone is interesteed I would be happy to put you in
touch.
