For newbies to MPL, needed imports seem a bit baffling. scipy, pylab, matplotlib, ...? What libs or lib components do I only need for a particular use? Suppose I want to produce a scatter, contour, or 3d plot. What do I need minimally or more widely? I'm assuming that I don't want to use import matplotlib a lot, but something selectively like from matplotlib.image import AxesImage, or from matplotlib.plot import figure, show. What did I miss in my Python upbringing?
