Sorry for the delay in responding. I have not been following this mailing list for the past couple of months.
Currently, the distance for the positioning of the label and the ticks is hard-coded. Note that in the current development branch (and I believe in v1.0.1), I have made some significant fixes to the calculation and alignment of the tick labels. This has lead to substantial improvement (in my opinion) of the ticklabel placement.
My plan is for the next release to remove many of the hard-coded values that governs the appearance of mplot3d plots.

Is there a way to control the distance between the axis label and the
tick labels with mplot3d.Axes3D? For small figure sizes they overlap and
I haven’t found a way to fix that. My last resort was to remove the tick
labels but that sucks for publication-quality plots.
