I still think it's worth talking to the author, however. As
I emailed him yesterday. No response yet though.

I think all of the mpl math/stats stuff will eventually end up in
scipy as matplotlib becomes more tightly integrated with the new
scipy. I've talked to Travis about that on a number of occasions and
he is pulling some stuff out of mlab already.
I think it is fine and good to put this kind of stuff into matplotlib
in the meantime while we get the integration and installation issues
