You need to understand that this is simply how free software works: when
someone needs something badly enough _for themselves_, they get off their butt
and write it. Then it's available for all to use (if released). I did that
for interactive mpl support over a year ago, so that's why it's been
prominently displayed for a while (and this _is_ useful to a lot of people,
since quick-and-dirty interactive data analysis is a very common task). Now
you guys are doing the same for WX tools, and that's fantastic. I'm sure
John will advertise it equally prominently.
So relax, nobody is trying to be misleading about anything, we're all here
simply working on what each of us needs, so the evolution process is rather
Perhaps I hadn't been clear. I'm not complaining of features missing. I'm just saying that, for example, the docs are misleading, because they focus on pylab when they would have to show both pylab and the OO interface. Pylab is a wonderful feature of MPL, but it's not the only one. I'm relaxed, I just feel that it's quite sad to focus only on pylab when users would like to know about the beautiful programming interface that already exists and that lies beneath.
