mpl 1.5.1?

Hey folks,

We have accumulated a number of important bug fixes on the 1.5.x branch,
(soon including https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/5690 which
fixes a segfault when using pyside) so we should strongly consider doing a
1.5.1 release.

I do not think we need to do a rc cycle given the low-risk and so we can
get this out inside of the 2.0 mike-finds-all-the-rabbit-holes development
cycle.

If anything, the rc process is good for vetting the correctness of the
binary builds. We do conflate the beta and rc process to be the "rc
process", and I agree that we don't need a beta testing period for 1.5.1,
but an rc should still be done so that people can report issues with the
binary builds. Note, this can be very short (just a couple of days, really).
