Figuring out enclosing bbox when arbitrary spline paths are involved
is difficult (I think there is no exact solution). So I only intended
to support common cases.
Ok, I can understand that, but shouldn't all artists used to construct the picture, as suptitle, be considered?

Can you be more specific? Does it throw an exception? Or the code runs
without any error but the output is still wrong?
No error/exception are produced. The output is simply identical to the one without bbox_extra_artists.
This also works in my previous example:
import matplotlib as mpl
fig = mpl.figure.Figure()
cvs = mpl.backends.backend_agg.FigureCanvasAgg(fig)
plot = fig.add_subplot(111)
st = fig.suptitle("Horray!", fontsize=20)
fig.savefig("out.png", bbox_inches='tight', bbox_extra_artists=[st])
