Well, it's used to control the figure dpi <wink>. It is used

Fair enough, but my expectation is that when I called savefig, I'd get the same resolution as the screen, unless I specified otherwise. If savefig used the Figure dpi as the default, but allowed it to be overridden (like it does) then we could all be happy. However, if there's one thing I've learned about usability, it's that different people have different expectations, so what you have might fit other peoples expectations better, and we can all do what we need to do.
