matplotlib at LIGO/GW observation

I've occasionally put software like matplotlib in the Acknowledgements
section, and included a reference there.

I wasn't aware of \nocite, I may use it in the future.

There is a certain unfairness in the citing when the citation goes to a
review paper, not to the source. Similarly, for software when the problem
is that not all the parts that contributed can be referenced, a software
paper describing the software, processing and what bit are used from here
and there will at least set up some traceability.

I think a default addition in the Acknowledgements, with a citation,
(because it's important for automatic scholar tools, like G.Scholar
or H-factor calculations...) would probably be the best combination.
Indeed, something like :

"The author(s) thank the contributors of Matplotlib [Hunter:2007] for
making the software freely available."
