mathtext traited config error

Darren,

There is an inconsistency between mpl-data/matplotlib.conf and config/mplconfig.py. The former has [[math]] under [text], but the latter is based on a separate [mathtext]. It would be trivial to resolve the inconsistency, but I don't know which way it should be resolved, so I will leave this to you or Mike.

Darren,

I trust your judgement on which way to go, as you have a better sense of how other settings have been laid out. I'm happy to do the work -- I just don't know which is correct going forward (these are new settings, so backward compatibility isn't a concern.)

The values in matplotlib.conf should also should be updated to match mplconfig.py.

Cheers,
Mike

Darren,

I trust your judgement on which way to go, as you have a better sense of
how other settings have been laid out. I'm happy to do the work -- I
just don't know which is correct going forward (these are new settings,
so backward compatibility isn't a concern.)

The values in matplotlib.conf should also should be updated to match
mplconfig.py.

Eventually, matplotlib.conf should be autogenerated when setup.py is run. I
have not tried to do this yet, maybe I can spend some time on it next
weekend.

The mathtext settings are more like font.* settings than text.*, so I think
they should get their own section (like in matplotlib.conf) instead of a
subsection of text (like in mplConfig).

As for the greater organization of mplConfig, I laid things out in a way that
made sense to me, but this organization is completely hidden right now, and I
think we should discuss it before it congeals. For example, some might feel
strongly that we should stick to the rcParams organization, to make a
possible future transition as easy as possible. Here is what I changed:

rcParams mplConfig
-----------------------------|-----------------------------------
backend backend.use
font.sans-serif font.sans_serif
text.dvipnghack text.latex.dvipnghack
polaraxes.grid axes.polargrid
cairo.* backend.cairo.*
tk.* backend.tk.*
ps.* backend.ps.*
ps.usedistiller backend.ps.distiller.use
ps.distiller.res backend.ps.distiller.resolution
pdf.* backend.pdf.*
svg.* backend.svg.*
