Capitalization of Matplotlib

I am in the final rounds of edits for my book and a question has come up between me and the editors. When should the matplotlib be capitalized?

  1. never

  2. mostly never (even in the beginning of a sentence), except when used in a title

  3. usually never, except at the beginning of a sentence and in titles

  4. capitalize when referring to the project, not capitalized when referring to the package

  5. usually capitalize like a proper noun except in code examples

Thoughts?

IMO, never.

Ah, since it is a proper name it should be capitalised, but it never was. I think that it should remain uncapitalised and that you want to propose an alternative, like a change in type for the proper name matplotlib. Could be typescript, or something else.

I'm guessing the type-setters would object to always using typewriter
(or other special) font for matplotlib, as it would quickly get tiring
on the eye.
