There is the plot[1] library which provides for updateable plots from GHCi
REPL and has a gnuplot-like interface.  I wrote it for this very reason, a
mathematics/statistics development environment.

It uses Data.Vector.Storable, which provides for compatability with both
statistics and hmatrix packages (as well as hstatistics).

Data.Vector.Storable and can be sliced and otherwise manipulated.
