pylab in CVS

On the users list, I recently discussed renaming the matlab namespace
to pylab out of trademark concerns

This change is now in CVS. For the next few releases, importing
matplotlib.matlab will work but issue a deprecation warning. I also
added to site-packages, and the suggested way of importing
the pylab namespace is

  from pylab import blah, blah

which is a wrapper around

  from matplotlib.pylab import blah, blah

There is a script at
to recursively convert names files and directories to the new naming
convention. Read the header to see which cases it handles and which
it does not.

Please update your repositories and test the new changes and
conversion script, which will go into the 0.65 release.
