What is sansmath.py?

I meant sansmath.sty of course, sorry.

sansmath.sty is not distributed with tetex, and it doesnt look like it is
included in the mac tex distributions. I'm sorry, but I don't think this is a
viable solution.

I know. I thought, as sansmath.sty is really short, it could be added to
the tex header for mpl's text generation.

Oh, I see. That may be possible, but I think it needs some testing before we
try it. There must be a reason that sansmath is not distributed with tetex,
maybe because of all the conditions concerning greek symbols listed in the
sty file.

I don't have as much time to work on mpl these days, and usetex has
fortunately not required much attention lately. I'm therefore hesitant to try
to add new features, especially those that latex is not really designed to
support.
