Ellipse Grid Python

Recently, I had to deal with the problem of distributing (roughly) N points in a grid-like manner on an elliptical surface. A quick search for a programmatic solution brought up John Burkardt’s Ellipse Grid.

As I’m almost exclusively working in Python, I made a quick translation of his C++ script. View and download it on Pastebin.
