Fast, Interactive Tcl Graphs

I'm looking for a good, simple plotting package.

Here are the requirements:
- Tcl/Tk bindings and embeddable in same
- ability to make interactive graphs (i.e. not just images)
- able to handle large data volumes (1e6 points in a scatter graph, say)
- not super complicated
Here are some examples of things that don't fit.
gnuplot: fails on interactivity and embeddability
VTK: fails on not super-complicated
BLT/RBC: fails on able to handle large data volumes
Several others: fail on Tcl/Tk bindings
I think VTK probably does exactly what I need, but the 2D charting is extremely poorly documented. There's 2 pages in a wiki, basically. All the other docs are just a massive class diagram dump that's impossible to learn from. Is there another Tcl-enabled, hardware accelerated graphing package out there that I'm too search-fu-weak to find?
