some API documentation

Last Thursday I did a tutorial on matplotlib for PyCon, and prepared a
couple of new tutorials for the workshop. I've attached these here in
their ReST source as in PDF for those of you interested in learning a
little more about the matplotlib API. The source and accompanying
code that generates the figures are found in the "doc" subdirectory of
the svn trunk, so feel free to make changes, bugfixes and submit
patches or new tutorials.

The first tutorial is an overview of the matplotlib Artist API and the
second is on event handling and object picking.

1. Hoping you will point to this from somewhere users are
more likely to find.
2. Has anyone actually complained about the use of getters
and setters? I've found it a friendly (i.e., predictable)
interface. Anyway, if you add properties, I hope that these
will remain (instead of, say, just using the property and
propset decorators).

Cheers,
