titles for legends


I sometimes want to add titles to legends in matplotlib. I couldn't find
an existing way to do this (but if there is one, then please tell me!).
So I have hacked together a patch to add a title keyword to the legend
class, which adds the title to the top of the legend. I'm not sure it
conforms very well to matplotlib style, but I have attached it to this
message in case anyone else finds it useful.
