legend.py "ValueError: numpoints must be >= 0; it was 0"

In legend.__init__ the exception message doesn't match the condition
that raises it. I think it should say "numpoints must be > 0". I'm
using matplotlib version 0.99.3.

Example:

···

#----------------------------
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
ax = plt.subplot(1,1,1)
ax.plot(1.1, 2.2, label='foo')
ax.legend(numpoints=0)
#----------------------------
# ValueError: numpoints must be >= 0; it was 0

Sorry for this very very reply.
The error message is now fixed in the git master branch.

Regards,
