Absolutely! Something like this very nearly made it into the 0.4.2 release yesterday, but I wanted to have a slightly wider discussion about the interface before just churning out code. There is actually a ticket already to discuss this bokeh.charts interface:
Some obvious types of charts we plan to include:
* bars (stacked, grouped, percentage, superimposed)
* hbars (stacked, grouped, percentage, superimposed)
* areas (stacked, superimposed)
* histogram (single or superimposed)
But if you have specific ideas about types of charts, interfaces, etc. please feel free to comment on that ticket (or here in the group). I actually plan to work on this in the next two weeks, so it should be in GH on master in that time frame, and part of the next 0.5 release in early April.
I should mention one other feature that just occurred to us to add: a command like bokeh tool, ala "gplot" so that could do things like:
$ cat foo.csv | bokeh hbar($1, $4, $5, $6) outfile.html
or for sending updating data to server output:
$ tail -f mylog | bokeh scatter($time, $errors) --host <plot server host>
Syntax very much TBD, but hopefully you get the idea!

Are there plans to make it easier to create standard charts? For example, the new tutorial -- nice job, btw! -- shows how to create a bar chart. It's pretty clear, but it's not as easy as say matplotlib. The reason I'm asking is that I'm part of a team that's working on a project to make it easier for people who work in Excel and aren't programmers to switch to using Pandas for analyzing data. Bokeh produces beautiful graphs and has tremendous potential in the long run, but that's a fair amount to ask of non-techy users to create basic graphs.
