Blob plots, like violin plots, but more precise

Violin plots are beautiful, useful and much clearer than drawing several histograms on the same plot.
In my opinion, the smoothing function that they implement with python does not really compensate the loss of precision with the visual appealing.
Why not plotting the whole distribution, then?

I modified the violin plots source code that I found here HERE

And produced... let's called them blob plots:

Here is the code.

Feel free to take it and do whatever you want with it.
If you have ideas to improve it let me know!
If you like the result, go say thanks to the violin plot maker (I did very little)
