I'm in the process of replacing R by matplotlib to plot all of our charts.
I'm hacking the PDF backend because I need this format to import
charts in ConTeXt (this is TeX macro package, similar to LaTeX, we use
to produce PDF reports).
My first question, very basic, is why function is_string_like, in
module cbook, doesn't simply
return isinstance(s, types.StringTypes)
try: obj + ''
except (TypeError, ValueError): return 0
