load and comments


I'm using very often the load command, I would like to know why the default
comments character is still '%', the one from matlab, other than historical?
I would prefer to have the one from python '#'. I know it's just a personal
preference but we are using python so for consistency I'm thinking that it
would be better to have '#' or at least to have an option in matplotlibrc to
choose the default character.
