After letting it sit, I'm not sure that my patch above is a good idea
anymore. While it would be useful, it also adds substantial complexity
to ob-python.

For now, I think I prefer to keep ob-python leaner, so am going to hold
off on this.

An alternative approach is to have the user handle graphics and
dataframes via noweb or header arguments.

I've added a couple examples on worg, demonstrating how to use noweb
to insert boilerplate code for handling matplotlib figures and pandas
dataframes [0,1].

Additionally, I'm attaching a small patch to make it easier to handle
graphics/dataframes via the :return header argument, as an alternative
to noweb. The patch includes a couple examples in ORG-NEWS
illustrating this.

I'll wait a week or so for comments before merging this new, more
limited patch into master.

Subject: [PATCH] ob-python: Improvements to :return header argument

* lisp/ob-python.el (org-babel-execute:python): Allow return-val to be
non-nil in sessions, and concatenate it after the expanded body.

+** New features
+*** =ob-python= improvements to =:return= header argument 
+The =:return= header argument in =ob-python= now works for session
+blocks as well as non-session blocks.  Also, it now works with the
+=:epilogue= header argument -- previously, setting the =:return=
+header would cause the =:epilogue= to be ignored.
+This change allows more easily moving boilerplate out of the main code
+block and into the header. For example, for plotting, we need to add
+boilerplate to save the figure to a file and return the
+filename. Instead of doing this within the code block, we can now
+handle it through the header arguments as follows:
+#+BEGIN_SRC org
+,#+header: :var fname="/home/jack/tmp/plot.svg"
+,#+header: :epilogue plt.savefig(fname)
+,#+header: :return fname
+,#+begin_src python :results value file
+  import matplotlib, numpy
+  import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
+  fig=plt.figure(figsize=(4,2))
+  x=numpy.linspace(-15,15)
+  plt.plot(numpy.sin(x)/x)
+  fig.tight_layout()
+As another example, we can use =:return= with the external [[https://pypi.org/project/tabulate/][tabulate]]
+package, to convert pandas Dataframes into orgmode tables:
+#+begin_src org
+,#+header: :prologue from tabulate import tabulate
+,#+header: :return tabulate(table, headers=table.columns, tablefmt="orgtbl")
+,#+begin_src python :results value raw :session
+  import pandas as pd
+  table = pd.DataFrame({
+      "a": [1,2,3],
+      "b": [4,5,6]
+  })
