pylab set function in python 2.4

In python 2.4 set is available as a built-in type.

Now if I do:

from pylab import *

I get a function called set, which I can use to set properties on pylab
objects.

I’m wondering if set is now a bad name for pylab to be using?

+1 for changing it.

I've also had this issue bite me when I was hacking together some code and
wanted to use a python set. I'd be in favour of changing the pylab set to
be called something else, although I don't have any good suggestions about
what to change it to...
