Is there any good reason to move to the "native" mpl api and drop pyplot?
I notice I don't even understand this question, but I'd like to. From
I see the difference between *pylab* and the pyplot module. But what
would be "the" native mpl api? How would you create a figure as in
"fig = plt.figure()", but without pyplot? If this is explained
anywhere in the docs, I haven't come across it.
