I've made a program that uses pylab to generate an animated plot but I needed
to add some extra GTK widgets in the same window as the animated plot. This
wasn't possible because I couldn't pack the widgets in the same VBox as the
pylab window. This was because get_current_fig_manager() gives you acces to
the window and canvas but not to the vbox. I've patched matplotlib to also
export the VBox attribute.
